Rough(er) Stretch

Post by Chastened Phoenix » Thu Aug 10, 2017 1:51 pm

Hi all,

So, I may be absent and/or not especially personable for awhile. RL crapstorm just got bumped up on the FML scale...

Still figuring out details.

I am sorry to hear that things have got worse. Good luck with them and I hope they improve.

Good news!
Today went about an order of magnitude better than I expected! Maybe more! :D

(Yes, I love the phrase "order of magnitude." :p )

Their cat did die, though. :(
Also... Well, I'll be sending a PM. Asking a favor, in a bit. I went into today consoling myself that at absolute worse, I could "make decent RP" out of any IG consequences of this RL stuff. Better than the worse case, but still...
Would like to make good RP, anyway! :D

So... Just learned that my stepdad has been diagnosed with Lyme Disease. Apparently, he contracted it this past July.

Anyway, taking him to his doctor's appointment later today. Hope it's been caught early enough to prevent any permanent harm. :(

Mom's also got either carpel tunnel, or arthritis in her hands (or both) and is expecting to be scheduled for surgery soon-ish. (Within a month or so.)

So... I'll be doing my best to give my folks TLC. :)

All good wishes to you and to your family. Hoping for the best possible outcomes in all cases.

Please convey particular condolences for the loss of the cat, and know, if it helps at all, that there are people here who understand the magnitude of that heartache. *strong hugs*

Good luck with the Lyme disease and I hope the treatment of your stepfather goes well. Hopefully the surgery will help your mother and alleviate any pain or loss of mobility she is suffering.
