  • As if my son having his leg amputated due to undiagnosed diabetes

    As if my having to go in for further vascular surgery for both my legs (easy fix though - at least comparatively so)

    It's the third thing today that has me all in a tizzy. It would appear my husband wants to be one finger short - he cut deep with the hedge trimmer just about an hour ago. We've gotten the bleeding stopped, he has two real nice skin flaps, and now has to go for a tetanus shot and maybe a stitch or two. He is so lucky, it could have been his entire hand.

    I'm tired - no more of this cr**p.

    When it rains it pours.

    I'm wishing the best for you, Claret.

      Oh dear Claret. It does seem also, in my life when troubles come, it's multiple things in a close span of time.

      Many thoughts and a hug. Hang in there and keep positive.

        Sorry, Claret, it always seems troubles come in threes.
        Hopefully, after these trials, you'll have a stretch of calm times.

          Girl..........ugh. I am so sorry. I'm sure you're feeling at the end of your already frazzled rope. Things are going to slow down soon. This crazy thing we live on has all this energy it warps us into, and most of it is cyclical. You're due for a slow down! Hang in there.

            Hugs to you Claret. Things will get better. Best wishes.
            I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience.
            Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

              Thanks everyone. Things do seem to be pressing down, but, it's not the first time and probably won't be the last. I'll just keep on, keeping on.
