Helen- Im so sorry to hear all that your going through. It does not matter how long it has been , when a love like we had with our loved ones is so deep i dont see how it can be easily disregarded. I feel so bad for you that you have to deal with doctors too when you know something is not right. Shame .. shame on them!! I feel just like you, all i have is not all I have it was all OURS. Everything we had is still ours, all around me is his presence whether its in the kitchen, bathrooom, outdoors, car, it ws never just his or mine. I look around and still say well thats what Mike used more than me or he liked that more etc. Im so glad to see you check in with us and at least let us know your ok. As janeo said if she was closer ... and if i were closer id help her help you out :) ((hugs)) Hang in there Helen your here for a reason dear, and you have alot of wisdom to offer.
Maggie - hope your feeling better as well dealing with those stones. I have never had them but heard they can be very painful. Keeping you in prayer.
Stacey - Congrats on the little ones achievement!! Thats great, they grow up so fast, enjoy every moment. Im sure he knew how proud mommy was of him :)
Saying extra prayers for each tonight and hope all have a peaceful rest .. Cheryl
Maggie ... I am so sorry you have not been well and kidney stones as you know are very painful. Finally! You know what was wrong and now it's healing time for you. I hope you are feeling much better. I have no doubt that smokey smell was from Dave. When things seem down and weary for me I can feel a strength from my Ernie and the good Lord. Almost as if they are teaming up together to keep me going. Now if only I could get the Canadian Health Care to listen! Our waiting time at hospitals are anywhere between 2 - 8 hours. Been there, done that so many times with my Ernie and myself in the past.
Please keep us posted as to how you are doing.
My Dear Helen .... Remember, when our spouses were with us our lives were busy, we worked, kept our homes up, shares 'things,' but what no one truly realizes is that material items are just 'things.' There are wonderful memories attached for a few things, but what truly is the answer when we look at material things around our homes is 'the memories they left us in our hearts ... sweet things they did for us and not things!' I am beginning to realize those small things such as my Ernie waking me up on a Friday or Saturday morning with a hot cup of tea, a silly grin on his face and holding a simple yellow rose or a bouquet of flowers from our garden. It's those small things I cherish and not a new car; new furniture, etc. Those small things they did for us are etched in our minds and the ultimate gift they have left us is those wonderful memories; their spirit soars around us even if some can't feel it. If you get that feeling 'someone is close' it's our beloveds. You may think 'I don't feel my loved one is close at all' but every single step you are now taking in your life be it small or great is spurred on by our loved ones. Even being on this wonderful forum with our extended family is a gift handed to us. Ask yourself 'how was I led to this forum?' No, you did not come on it by accident ... you were led here! Bless Steve Caine and bless the angels that we call our extended family.
