I had to share a couple photos of my Christmas cactus. I just noticed that it is filled with buds and has quite a few blossoms. Happy Tuesday. My your heart be blessed. Be kind, it costs nothing but can be priceless.

@johnbishop Thank you for helping again. I hope @trishj46 can benefit from your instructions.
@parus I too enjoy sending and receiving Christmas cards. I’m feeling that I’m in a better place mentally and am in the midst of writing out cards.I miss looking at beautiful holiday displays in store windows. After that, we’d stand in line to see Santa, get hot chocolate and sing carols. Has ‘Scamp’ come over for playtime?
@mamacita Im glad you have a Tech Helper (although I understand how “helpful” a 14 yr old can be.
Blessings to us all

@januaryjane I’m hoping and praying for you. I can hear the stress in your words and I understand. Breathe. My parents are long gone but I would change places in a heartbeat even to stress over them.
Hang on!

@januaryjane it sounds like you have really have your hands full with your parents. Talking to your dad’s doctor is important. Taking care of you especially when you are very stressed has to be a priority. Two weeks can be a long time if you are not practicing self-care. Take a walk, get a massage, go off on your own.
@hopeful33250 made good suggestions to help with your parents.
I’d like to hear what happens.

@astaingegerdm Congratulations on losing the weight! My husband has type 2 diabetes and Sleep apnea and has used a CPAP machine for years. He walks about 4 miles 4 days a week, this after 2 serious cervical spine laminectomy. Before the first surgery he could have been paralyzed if he were in an accident or fell. The poor guy had a spinal cord compression.
Stress sure does a number on fibromyalgia. I hope you are warm and happy.

@karihammel The pain of miscarriage never leaves me either. I had 3. My first at 12 weeks. Then a year later so got pregnant again, this time had an extra surprise- My doctor couldn’t see twin 2 and when I fully aborted twin 1, I didn’t need a D &C. This was at the time my mom passed away. Three weeks after I buried my mom I lost twin 2. I never had any live births. But I have 3 wonderful kids. Two were terrific bonuses that came with my husband. The 3rd my ex husband and I adopted, ironically due to his infertility.
I had RNY gastric bypass in 2007. I’ve lost and kept off 135 lbs without complications thank goodness.
