Kadesma was here in the good and the bad. We all have good memories of how she has inspired us.

So I will be here sometimes and will disappear without notice, but don't worry. I am dealing with a lot of pain and adapting to decreasing abilities but am handling it well.

But it is definitely easier in the company of friends ... in person or virtual.
Welcome back, LP. Love you bunches, but you knew that already. Chin up and move forward, it's all we can do, but the support of friends is what we need for that little shove in the right direction. Our Ma knew that!!!

Glad to see you back, Laurie With the neuropathy in my feet, I've been adapting to decreasing abilities, too. It's not easy, I know. We will always love to see whatever you can contribute when you are able

Thanks, everyone. I do feel loved. And I know I am not the only one here with challenges...that makes it better because we can support each other. Ma taught me that and I should have listened better.

GG, I am sorry about your feet problems. We don't realize how much we use our hands and feet until we can't.

Well I am off to my pool therapy and will probably rest most of the day. Just found out my HandyDART driver is none other than TB My regular driver is out sick. I have a new van (thanks to Dad's estate) that makes driving and getting in and out easier, however, when I go to the pool or physio I am tired after and don't feel safe driving.

Have a great day everyone.

This should be the last thread I'll get to play in for a while. As in "next year" while. We're figuring on getting out of here sometime Friday, noon-ish, but only if I finish what I need to do before we leave! Our daughter doesn't have internet at home, and our cell phones now have measured data service, so I'll probably be "dark" the entire time. Besides, I don't get to spend time with the kids enough so I'm going to suck up every precious minute while we're there.

Y'all here have a great time during the holidays with those you love. And even those you don't love - this is probably the ONLY time of year you have to put up with them.

I will miss you CG, as I am sure others will too.

Take care and have a safe journey there and back. Love the stuffing out of those grandkids and enjoy your holiday.
