How's this for a (b)itch session? Everything on here is true, and I have left a couple out for privacy's sake.
Also, everything on here is current and happening now.

1) My wife's Dad was in the hospital on and off for almost 2 months. They took out 10 feet of his small intestine for being ruptured. Now they think he has a hiatle Hernia as well.
2) My Wife's Sister had surgury to remover her breast tissue for a combination of genetic issues and a lump.
3) My Wife's cousin just died last week of the same cancer the sister was trying to avoid.
4) My wife flew out to see her sick uncle, but did not make it in time (see below)
5) My wife's Uncle just passed away. Leaving behind his wife who is stricken with alzheimers amoung other ailments.
6) Neither the sister nor the dad are really ready to travel to go to the funeral
7) I can't wait to find out what is next.
Got stress? remember I left some out.
Magic is like Science,
Both are fun if you do it right!

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

Cliff, I have faith that you are wearing it well. Be the rock for your family that I know you can be.

Today on the pitch a young girl went by in a wheelchair. She was missing both legs. But for the grace of God...

That's tough and so heartbreaking. Smile

Stay strong Cliffg37...

Not much to give but someone told me once.... Cry if you must, laugh when you can.

Prayers for you and yours.

Thank you for all the prayers and good wishes. I really was doing OK, but the last one, the one I leftout is personal to my wife and hits me harder than the others. I will be strong for my wife and for my 12 year old daughter too. I know the big guy is with me. Sometimes it just gets really tough to handle.

I feel for you and it's tough to be strong when the world is falling apart around you. In circumstances like this, as hard as it is, focus on the positive things that are going well around you. Your daughter's well being and health for example..that is something to be grateful for and will keep you going.
I'm writing this with experience as I'm going through many of the same things you are and keep giving myself the self pep talks. Stay strong Cliff and my thoughts are with you.

No offense, Cliff, but nearly everything you typed began with "my wife's".

Just get rid of your wife, and your problems are over. Right?

(Just kidding. Love you, buddy! Keep your head up.)
