I'm sorry to hear this Babe. I will definitely keep you in my prayers. I wish there were more that I could do. Have you spoken to your doctor about your depression? Are your kids keeping in touch? I hate it when you are down.

P.S. Sheesh, I should read more carefully before talking! I see you are going to the doctor soon. That's good. I know how hard it can be to want to do things but to not be able to.

Barbara beat me to it. Talk to the doctor about depression, it happens frequently when people have been injured.

We miss you, I miss you! Hugs!

Babe, I have really missed you. I am also very concerned. My father is dealing with many of the same adjustments you are so I know how difficult it is. Can you get anyone in to help you or just visit and take away that isolated feeling?

I am here for you - I wish I could be there for you.

i'm fretful 4 'ya, babetoo; though @ the when weaker we're quite alloted a nap or 5 a day!

& that thought of discussing your mood w/ your doc versed my mind nearly immediately, too, along w/ these guys'.

i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
