.. It's so good to hear from you, sunflowergirl! I was beginning to think i'd lost all my friends here! Thank you for the link to the thread on PA husbands. I'll check it out when I have a little more strength. I hope you've been doing well, sunflowergirl. Unfortunately, neither my dad nor I are doing well. My dad is succumbing to the effects of chemo... he has lost a ton of weight because he can barely eat. I've been going downhill, unfortunately, and my husband's PA tendencies are exasperating my condition and making it worse. So please keep praying. My brain isn't working so well lately, so I'm not able to spend a lot of time (nor energy...what little I have) on figuring out this new format. One thing I do like, is the ability to send private messages. However, when I tried to send one (my first attempt) to 4 members, and you were one of the four, a message popped up that said I wouldn't be able to private message Sunflowergirl...??? Any ideas on why that would be the case? All of these problems and "brick walls" I keep encountering here on this new format is exhausting... and requires more energy that I have right now, unfortunately. Let me know how you're doing, Sunflowergirl... God bless you!
