I really like Sam! He's so cute and has a great voice. All he needs is to spice up his performance--just take a teensy bit of Caleb's antics! Continue Reading

In my opinion, the bio mom didn't try hard enough to rescue her son. She seemed to have seen and heard red flags. I don't think the little boy should be living with her. Sad, sad story! Continue Reading

Tiki Mommy, gazelle, and JBetsy, thank you so much for taking the time to help me gain perspective on this. I guess being off one's feet and being totally dependent in scary for most people! Continue Reading

I don't understand your reluctance at having the surgery - a short stay at rehab center then home. Geez - I have cared for 98 year olds having major open heart surgery and they did fine. what does age have to do with anything? Thanks!!!! I needed that!!! Continue Reading

Mistri, you have my deepest sympathy! You are really a strong person--taking care of your dad both physically and emotionally, dealing with your mother's problems, advocating for your dad, and devoting yourself to these priorities. Most people couldn't surpass your strength and courageousness! You are wise to get away from all of this and pursue your own goals when it's time. You have so much to give to others!!

Soon after I quit smoking, I gained 30 pounds! Right after that, both my knees were killing me! I went to my orthopedic specialist and she took X-rays. She said both my knees were really bad and I need to get both replaced. This has all come about in about the last 5 or 6 months!! I then went to 11 one-hour sessions of physical therapy. My right knee hurts more now than before I went to therapy. What do I need to know about knee replacement? Will I need to be on one floor? Will I need someone to come in and take care of me? Any advice would be appreciated!!! Continue Reading
