    Trouble seems to come in bunches sometimes. I am sending up a little prayer.

    Love, Mikie

    It actually sounds like it might be a good move for your dad...what do you think? Sounds like a nice place that you all know about already. Just me looking from the outside, though. Is your sister upset? ARe you?

    Daughter's puppy....)-: Praying for her and for all of you.

    Praying for your family...lots of upheaval right now...like Mikie says...it comes in bunches.

    Take care of yourself, Sis...you need to be strong to go through all of this...don't want you down and out.

    Thanks!! I appreciate your prayers and support! Yeah,,,,i was thinkin the same thing! trouble does come in bunches sometimes!

    Just not Quite sure how to feel about Dad! I love him and don't want to see him there but theres nothin i can do! but to be supportive to him! ,,,,,,,,,,,Sue ,,,,Thanks for your prayers and support,,,,,,

    I'm not up set about Dad going there it's just that my sister has a Bipolar disorder that she refuses to accept and/or get any medical help for,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    So needless to say She has and still does at the age of 54,,,,,abuses all family members Emotionaly,,,and Verbaly,,,,,,,

    I Finaly ended my relationship with her 1 year ago just to have peace of mind,,,,,,Don't know how her Husband puts up with it! He's a well mannered wonderful person who would give you the shirt off his back!,,,,,,,,,,,,Venting!

    Can you visit your Dad regularly? I wouldn't want to go to a nursing home, but it sounds better than living w/ your sister and her illness.

    Does he like your cookies?

    All the best.

    one good thought is atleast your father got to choose where he went to and none of you kiddos have to feel any guilt that it was not good enough place for him...maybe when he gets better he w/feel like moving back w/one of you.

    osrry about the you dog...sad!
