I hope your Dad is doing well. That must have been hard on you being in the hospital. I am also sorry you are having more guilt like me. It’s a horrible feeling. Also one that others don’t understand."
Im sorry for your loss no matter how long ago it is.

Hope every one is doing fine. Last week my father got an infection and was hospitalized so could not follow much here. Now he is better and recovering.

Those are hurtful things you had to deal with. I am so fortunate that drinking was never a frequent activity with most of my family. The only thing I can say is this. I am the one feeling guilty, desperately hoping my Mom…"
"Thank you Brett. It is very scary. What I do not like the most is the lack of motivation and being so easily fatigued. I am also frustrated with the lack of support from the Doctors. I keep asking it it would be dangerous to increase a certain…"
