    Hi COokie,

    I haven't seen you around here since the day before you were going to see your step mother, so I was wondering how that went and how you are doing now?

    Hi Honey Bunny, Its so nice of you to think of me. I hadn't seen my step mother since after Christmas and when I saw her on Friday, it was like looking at someone that I had never seen before. She is in her lat 60's but she looks like she is in her late 80's. Poor thing. It was really nice to see my whole family, my sister and three step brothers. Even a family friend was there. We took some really nice family pics. I've been calling my step mother every other day, just short little chats because she is hurting too much and on a load of pain meds. I will be talking to my sister about my step mothers condition. I keep waiting for that one call, to tell me that she is in the hospital.

    The ride to my mom and dads was agonizing and caused major tail bone pain. Then the ride home was even worse. Now my tail bone is so screwed up, it hurts more than my VLSC does. I never thought I would say that ANYTHING hurts more than that.

    Thanks bunches Doodles dahling. muahs to you

    Hey Cookie!!! Sorry to hear you're in so much pain. Glad you got to spend some "happy" time with your step mom. The last time I saw my Great Grandmother was at her birthday party in July. She died the following September. That was 7 years ago this year, and while I miss her horribly on her birthday and holidays, I know she's in a better place and I have almost 30 years of memories to keep me happy. Even some of my great grandfather who died when I was 5. Ever since I moved to Texas I keep waiting for "that phone call" especially when my dad was undergoing cancer treatment, so I can soo sympathise with you. Take care and hope you feel better soon.. ((((((Hugs)))))
