The next month or so

Rereading my last blog, I can see that things are starting to get to me again.

Life is getting a bit tough at the moment for a few reasons: my MIL will not be with us for much longer, we are coming up to the second anniversary of my daughter's death and other matters related to that (concerns regarding her medical treatment) are still nowhere near resolution. As a result, I may not blog very regularly for a while and if I do it might not be very entertaining reading.

So please don't think I have been squashed by a 4x4 if I don't post for a few days, OK? I am probably just taking time off to play mom, or just knuckling down to get through it all.

Love you all, please don't give up on me.

Never, never, never - we will never give up on you John.
You can take all the time you need or write about whatever you want. We'll be here. I only wish that things weren't so tough on you right now.
Might I make a suggestion though? should set up an email account for um, er, ah, certain people to write you at when they are thinking about you, or worrying about you. (Cough) MAYbe, you should send that address to a couple friends in Canada (and the US) - might I suggest as your first address to send it to?
That's just a suggestion (but a very pushy one - I worry about you) but I know a couple people who would love to be able to write to you.
Anyways, regardless, of course we will be here and sending good vibes your way.
We love you John.

Blogging your unhappy thoughts is okay. They don't always have to be happy. Whatever makes you feel comfortable. I have found that I don't feel like blogging when things are bad too. I don't want to burden people with my problems. But when you start talking about them you realize that there are other people out there that have similar problems too (or at the least that they're struggling through difficult things too). I can't believe how much I've come to care about all of you in such a short time and from such distances. I read your blog this morning and felt like crying because you are sad and wanting to give you a hug to make things better. I'm sorry that you are having a difficult time right now. I am sending a hug your way. I am definitely willing to be on your email list with Ali. My thoughts will be with you and your family.

Oh John....I'm sorry you're having a tough time right now. If your posts are fewer, know you WILL be missed. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. And if you do set up an email account, I'd like to know too ( if for nothing more than to send you prayers and well wishes now and then.

You guys are so great!

My private email is:

Thanks for everything.

Oh, please know that you will be missed!! I absolutely enjoy reading your blog John! I think you are an amazing person and my heart breaks every time I think about your daughter that you lost. I CANNOT imagine what you went thru and will NEVER pretend that I do.

Please know that if you want to post angry blogs that is OK with us. If you don't want all of the mushy gushy comments (as do I when I am writing like that) then you can turn the comments off and just use your blog to vent. It's up to you obviously...I guess what I am trying to say is please don't think that just because we all 'only' know eachother thru this blogging thing that we are not 'true' friends...because we all are! We may never meet face to face but that doesn't matter, we still care about you TONS. You do whatever you want with your blog, we will be loyal readers and we will do whatever we can to help...comment or not comment...whatever you prefer.

We love you and I definately will be praying for you and your family as both of these incredibly difficult situations are happening.

We love you John!!

P.S.-I am going to be setting up a blog e-mail soon and when I do, I will get you that address.
