  1. This has been a rough week. My brother has some dementia. So hard to see him deteriorate. He used be the head of engineering and now he can not remember where he went for lunch. His wife of 61 years died suddenly this past Sunday. Have no idea how he can possibly live by himself. His 2 daughters are with him, so I hope something can be arranged. I am not comfortable asking him to live with me. I can barely take care of myself. He can not be left alone. Then my 47 yr old son had a motorcycle accident in Mexico. A "kid" that age is not interested in listening to his mother. He injured his ankle and foot. I told him to get it xrayed. No. Now he can not walk and he thinks it is infected. Have to get thru funeral first.
  2. Just wanted to tell all my friends here to have as Merry Christmas as you can. I know that this is a very hard time for all of us. Life as we knew it is gone. I will have some time with my daughter and grandchildren tomorrow. Another daughter on Saturday. Hard to be too enthusiastic about anything, but I will do my best. Take care of yourselves and keep posting. Gin
  3. Yes, nothing comes near to what Al and I meant to each other. NOTHING! Gin
  4. People tell me I need more friends, also. Easier said than done. I would love them, but it takes a long time to develop a friendship. With limited mobility, getting out is not easy. I try. I really do. Knit club, book club, bible study. People are nice, but I would not call them friends. My friends have either moved, died or are in nursing homes. Getting old is sure not for sissies.
  5. No problems here, Gwen. Left this forum, and able to get back in fine.
  6. Karen, keep that light on! Hope you did not do too much damage! Gin
  7. Johnny,. Thinking of you today. It is so hard. Gin
  8. Marg and Kay, Some things are just over forever.
  9. Kay,. I do not even miss it. Without Al, it means nothing.
  10. Marg, I will not go to any plays anymore. Al and I used to go to 1-2 a week. People have asked me to go with them. I thank them and refuse. That was OUR thing. They do not understand, but I am used to that. Gin
  11. George,. So glad you are OK. Prayers for a quick and complete recovery! A blessed Thanksgiving to you! Gin
  12. Kay, hope the weather guys are wrong. It is so hard to keep shoveling and try to get the car out. My turn will come again but not for at least another week. Gin
  13. Yes Gwen, It is so lonely. I went to church this morning and it was so good to at least see people. Then I came home and had several bad coughing spells. Maybe I am not as well as I was hoping. Ordered cold and cough stuff on Amazon. Coming tomorrow. I do not even want to go to the store anymore. Hope you have an OK day tomorrow on your bday. I had my 80th in July. No Al. No fun. I wanted to get a dog. Always had one. Afraid I could not take care of it. Especially in the winter. So, there is nothing else alive in the house. I will probably even kill the one poor plant that lives here. Better go water it now. Hope things improve for you soon! gin
  14. I do not know many people there. Just recently became a member there after my church closed. So, I either get there on my own or do not go.
