My sister (Purple Alien Giraffe) asked me to let everyone know that she probably won't be on for a couple of weeks. She sent her phone through a wash cycle and it didn't survive. She's in the process of moving, so that was the only way she had to get on here. She'll be back when she can be!

My moms out of the hospital and doing well considering. I moved her in with me until she regains her strength. Her problems stem from years of cigarette smoking. For the past two to three weeks she hasn't smoked. Well, as of yesterday she started fussing about wanting a cig. What can ya do but she's not smoking in my house, lol. I hate cigs. So I got her some patches and I hope that will hold her until she's able to be back at home.....but I doubt it. She'd be in much better health if she'd quit. But I guess we all have our vices.


Thank you all for the kind and encouraging words.

Talk to her about using Chantix, Nikki. It was a miracle drug for me. Maybe then she can be quit for good.

Good Luck and Bless You for taking her in.

I am not sure of my participation over the next week. With the holidays, doctor appointments and now Dad being ill again, I may have no time or lots of time (while being up making sure he is okay).
