    Hi everyone! :)

    I have missed evryone here so very much!

    For months now I have had no computer or internet access ( my computer was wiped out from viruses )......but finally I was able to get an account for my computer here at work so here Iam !:)

    I hope that all of you had a very happy Christmas and new years!

    I want to update everyone on how Iam doing these days!:)

    First of all: I wish I could say that Iam doing better with DD but unfortunately Iam not! In fact it is very rare that I have a good day anymore ...BUT I keep on trying.......I guess their is a good side to being stubborn! LOL

    Months ago I had posted here asking what could be wrong with my middle son who is 19..........and many of you posted to me and suggested he had "aspergers" and I want to say how grateful Iam to those of you who posted and helped bring me awareness to "aspergers" because of you.........I was able to get my son to a specialist and have him diagnosed and "YES" with aspergers!

    I applied for SS for him and within 8 weeks he had his first check....I was prepared to have to go through a lot and even prepared to deal with appeals with the ss system but I was very fortunate and we got accepted on first try!

    So....."THANK YOU" with all my heart for helping me!

    Iam sad that my son will never be able to have the life every mother wants their child to have..........but Iam so happy that he does have parents like us who love him and are more than willing to take care of him until we are gone!It is hard not to think about who will understand, love him and take good care of him when we are gone.:(

    My husband and I are doing good, my husband recently submitted his resume to a new company ...........( the company actually requested him ) but if he does get this new job he will make a lot more income and have a lot better benefits...............I will be able to stop working!

    So, I pray he gets it! It will make his life and mine much more tolerable in many ways! My husband is in construction and his body is tired and painful...... this job will be field supervising so no more physical work..........his body will be able to "retire" LOL

    My youngest son is doing very well also, he is now working full time with my husband and is loving it.........all the bosses love him and think he is a good worker...so that is a step in the right direction!

    My oldest son is doing great too.............:)

    Now for the BEST news! My Grandson Cohen is almost a year old!!!!!!!!!Can you believe that???????!!!!!!!!

    On Feb 23 he will be "ONE"!

    He is doing so good and I love him more than I did before ( if that is even possible )

    I did take PVLday's advice and broke the ice to make ammends and start over............things are still not as good as they really should be ........however Cohens mom and her family are actually being very much better with me................I even got a hug from them for New years!

    Cohen is absolutely the sunshine in my life and he is so attached to me as Iam him! He actually cries when I even walk out of the room and if anyone else tries to take him when Iam holding him he swipes his arm at them as if to say "NO" LOL
    We have him three times a week right now for a total of 28 hours! In Feb we are going to try to get overnights!

    I can't imagine life without my sweet little Cohen .........he has brought so much joy and happiness into my life and Iam so so very grateful for every minute I spend with him!

    I must admit that is makes my heart smile too........that he loves and wants me the way he does! :) :) :) :)

    My doggies are doing pretty good.........we did lose our pit bull "Bud" a few months ago............you all know me I was a wreck!

    We had to have our pet parakeet put to sleep a few weeks ago and I even cried when we put him to sleep! "OK" I know Iam a softy but I love all animals !

    I hope that you will write to me and let me know what is going on with you and your lives, how your feeling.........I can't wait to hear from everyone!

    Love and hugs
    Doxy

    Thank you for the warm and caring responses each of you left me!

    Sue, Iam so sorry for the losses you have had ............I know how hard that can be I lost two of my Grandparents within a 3 month period and it is so difficult with one, two is even more challenging!

    I hope your home gets done soon so you can relax and enjoy..............what a thrill to be getting a brand new home! ;) please keep in touch and let me know how things are going! OK?! My husband and I may be moving if he gets the new job............if we do move we too will be building our own ( cheaper than buying )!

    Thanks again for your post it made my heart smile!

    Prickles,

    Thanks for taking the time to write even when you have so much on your plate with school and all.........I will kee you in my thoughts and prayers not only for your schooling but that you may stop having so many bad flares!

    I will pray your husband gets his new job...you deserve a new house, and yes, it's cheaper than buying one completed.

    I will keep you informed. DH bought me a new laptop for Christmas so when we move, if he stays here for a bit, I will have a computer. So, I plan to stay connected to this board and all the nice people on it.

    Haven't been as active lately on here, but it was really nice to see your name again.

    Hugs,
    Sue

    Just last night I was wondering about you and was getting concerned.

    So happy to hear all the positive news. So glad you know what is wrong with your son. At least you know what you are dealing with and we know you will handle it well. I am thrilled about your grandbaby. I had wondered on him also.

    Pretty much the same here. Except Dr. thinks I might have PD (Parkinson). I am taking med for it and it has helped.So that is good.

    Take care and I will be looking for you. Blessings for you, and soft hugs also.........Susan

    Welcome back!

    I didn't know that you had been away from the board for that long! That's only because I have, too! I still can't spend much time here because of my health.

    It was nice to read your update. I know how you feel about your grandson, because I have 2 of them!!

    My health has been declining. I recently was hospitalized for congestive heart failure again. Along with the heart problems, my back and knees have be almost homebound because of the inability to stand, walk, or move.

    I'm glad that your holidays were as happy as mine!

    Hugs,

    Jlh .....my dear Iam so sorry to hear about your heart! :(
    Lots of prayers and thoughts coming your way! Thank you too, for thinking of me and writing to me..I have missed you and everyone so much! XO

    I was so happy to see your post to me! "YAY"
    How are you doing girlfriend?

    "Yes" many good things have come from the "bad" things!

    It is sometimes so hard to ride out the storms! It still is not "easy" but it sure is better than it was!

    I know one thing for sure I appreciate every good thing in my life right now........and I don't ever take the good for granted!

    I do think that while the storm has calmed I will try to0 get a new boat that is more sturdy so I can weather the next storm a little easier! LOL LOL LOL

    PLEASE write to me and fill me in on the last few months that I haven't been able to get here!

    Thanks for being here for me and for writing to me!

    Love and hugs to you!
