Oh Marge I'm so sorry to hear this. My thoughts and prayers are definetly sent your way.
I know how you must be struggling with grief and concern at the same time. I totally empathize with you. As you know my mom died in Jan. 2004 from cancer and then we were faced with dad having a stroke in October 2004 and finally a massive one in July 2005. I just couldn't believe I was being hit with 2 major things so closely together. I still can't believe I came through it all because there were times when I just wanted to crawl into a hole and hide.
What got me through is knowing there is a reason for everything and even though I didn't know and still don't know....why God made me experience these two things.... I will know when its my time to join them.
What kept me going too was the love and support of my loved ones and friends and knowing that God never gives us more than we an handle.
So please try to find your way with dealing with this that will benefit you. And know that we are all here for you whenever you need us. We love you Marge and we're all here to help you in anyway we can!
