    So sorry to read about your situation. Any of these things would be a challenge, not just to your diet changes but to your health and life in general. I know some people have difficulty knowing what to say to people with true problems, not just the common "I had a flat tire and was late to church" types of problems. It is a shame your JCC did not handle the situation well. It sounds to me that you are running a tape loop of problems, not surprising but it is tearing you apart. I myself was recently told that, if lucky I could live 3 more years. That tape loop is running in my background all the time so I can sympathize. Hang in. The thing that keeps me sane is concentrating on the little everyday things. Do this task as it should be done, plan the next thing. The routine is giving me time to cope and normalize the situation. No one can make your problems go away but there are those who do want to support you.

    when my Dad died a few years back, I called to cancel my JC appointment. I cannot believe that I remembered to do that. Take care of yourself even it is something simple. It helps.

    Thank you for your kindness. I still have hope. I will do all I can to prolong the time-span and hope they find a cure. And Jenny's recipe for tuna salad is terrible. lol But that was Sunday lunch for me today and I managed to eat it. We can do this.

    Hope that his suffering isn't prolonged. I can't stand hospitals. I've traveled that path with both my parents but lucky (?) that they were able to die at home. My quest for weight-loss is fueled by my ambition to outlive them -- big time. Neither of my parents saw 70 yrs old and they actually were both very healthy people until they each had a major illness. At 54, I have a lot of living to do and I want to live each and every one of those days in best possible shape. I am sorry that your family is not near you - that must be very difficult. Hoping for better days ahead for you.

    So sorry to hear about your dad. Just went through a few years with my parents. So glad you went though to give your mom comfort. I looked up those bakery items.. and they look good. I'm sure it was about comfort food. And don't despair over the weight, you will get it off. After my Dad died turned to Jenny with a vengeance. I wanted to be in the best shape I could be in. He had said if there's something bothering you about your life - fix it.. So I did. I need to remember that I honor him by being happy - and living. You returned home to take care of yourself - taxes and Jenny. I hope you have some peace during this very difficult time - and hoping Dad is at peace and out of pain - Hopefully the hospital is helping him get relief. Big Cyber Hug! Sue

    I am so sorry to hear about your father. I totally understand that long-term illness makes it even harder to know what to do. You can't possibly hop on a plane every time there is a health challenge - or you would be flying back and forth all the time which makes it hard to juggle all your other responsibilities. We haven't heard from you in a while... so I hope that everything is okay...

    Mia’s mom. I’m very sorry to here about your dad. I went through the same thing with my mom. She was sick for years and lived in Florida and I’m in NJ. It is always difficult to make the decision to go or notgivdn respinsibilities with job and kids.
