    Sorry I haven't posted to much responding to you guys. It's been one thing after another. I feel very lost right now, and left out. Well my uncle was released from the hospital, but is still not breathing on his own. hes doing alittle better but not much. He's gonna be ok thats what counts. It doesn't end there though. I went to the dr.and he says that the inflammation from the surgery still hasnt gone down, so i have to start from square one. Back in a cast and can't use it AT ALL. BOO! But it just gets even better. My aunt calls me yelling at me because I gave my cousins dad ( hes not apart of her life and never really has been) a picture of her. I explained the reasoning behind it and my aunt understood, but now wont speak to me. I wrote a message to my cousin appologizing and telling her my reasoning, and that i love her and all i received back was a "ok, i agree" that's it. She isn't speaking to my now either. They are two of very little of my family that i still talk to. BUT WAIT!!! Theres more!! My second cousin has been in the hospital for months with health problems. I got a phone call yesterday from my mom telling me that she passed away yesterday morning. so here i am alone grieving because i cant afford to fly home. wow life is great

    Wow Mrs. D, you really have a lot of things all coming at you at once!! I'm so sorry. I hope your uncle pulls through he getting in-home care since he is still on a respirator? I hope very soon he can be weaned off of it and be doing much better.
    Sucks about your wrist, and your family crap all happening at the same time, too. I heard a quote from Mother Theresa, "I know God won't give me more than I can handle, but I sure wish He didn't trust me so much!" Humorous but still, yeah I agree with that. I hope very soon you can have some positive things happening to you.
