Well all,

I haven’t been on much and probably won’t be much.  We seem to be having internet issues again and my lif has been crazy!

my email for so very many years is most years will most likely disappear. 
If you try to email me, use my current email name with a 2.  The at is iCloud (dot) com

im headed to Ks soon to help my parents.  After a long time in the hospital with issues, it has been determined that my mom most likely has cervical cancer. Sibs are arranging assisted living transition soon.  I will head home to help dad with appts and things.

At 93 this isn’t easy for either of them. I know my friends here have gone thru these issues with parents.  It’s my turn to help ….seems a long time ago that I helped hubbys parents.  Prayers appreciated.

So very sorry to hear about your Mom.  This must be a terrible blow to your Dad, you, and your siblings.  Prayers for you all, and a special hug for you.  May G-d spread his healing hands to help everyone through this transition.

I’m so sorry to read this. Yes, many of us have gone through something similar. I know being during the holiday season the diagnosis is harder, but in reality no time is.  Take care my friend. Prayers going continually up for you and yours.

We have talked about this.  Is assisted living being arranged for both of your parents or only your Mom? Will your Dad be able to manage by himself.  I know how difficult all of this is.  At least there are 5 of you to assist.  You are all in my prayers.

Ellen I will pray for your parents, you and your family. I know this is a hard time.

I'm sorry you are doing through this.  Unfortunately, most of us have had to go through similar stuff with our parents.  We totally understand what you are going through.  You are so lucky you have siblings who are close by and can help.  I will be saying a prayer for you and your family during this time.

Sorry to hear this! I know it must be a tough transition. I've been talking to my parents about plans for the future, too. They're younger, but my dad (76) is COPD/emphysema guy whom I could show qualified for hospice if he applied. My mom just turned 70, but she has Cerebral Palsey and Meniere's, so can't get around w/o my dad. Soooo... time to start prepping thought wise.

I'm sorry Ellen.  It is hard when our parents age and have such big health issues.  I'll be praying for your wisdom, patience and both your parents to be receptive to necessary changes.

Where in KS do you go?  That's my home state and Canton is the town. Very small, but nice place to grow up.

I know where Canton is!  My family lives in and near Cheney.  West of Wichita!

im praying the weather holds for me to get there tomorrow night!
