    thank you for answering me and welcoming to the board. i have been having a bad week with a friend of mine's husband being in the hospital for quadrupal bypass,he is still in and having some problems.i don't drive very much and these hot,dry and humid days in ky aren't easy. my daughter has a cat,named snickers and she is what they call a turtle color.she is big,spoiled and beautiful. my daughter has lupus but works full time as a social worker and is going for her master's degree in psychology this year,doing on line after work. she has her good days and bad but seems to be doing good for now. i hope you do better and soon,know it is hard not being able to do things for yourself.i'am 54 and sometimes feel very useless even though everyone tells me i'am not.take care and hope to chat again. prayers and thoughts biddy
