The Official Real Life Happens PP Member Support Thread

Truly in awe of all the kind words, prayers, etcetera. It gives me a great feeling to hear such genuine concern for LORI.

Just found my mind articulating a great loss we face. We've been married 52 plus years and have shared so so much. Joy, sadness, successes, disappointments, all the things that life mandates. I will truly miss being able to fully share those memories.

I might kick some of that around on here from time to time.

Anyway, many many thanks and much love to you all.

Cheers, :toast:
 
You got it always. Ask O_P_T big shoulders are needed life throws you lemons make lemonade.

My cancer survivor always amazes me with her resilience and we talk daily … play golf together, she tells me I can’t die but I know she will carry on regardless. The key resilience… you were all here for me i will always be here for you guys and gals.

In light of Tim's sad news this must seem trivial. And Tim, my thoughts are with you.

Some of you know my boy was just married in April to a fantastic gal. Tonight he calls me and asks me about my past episodes of atrial fibrillation. ( that's another story).
I had this WTF moment and said what's going on? he says my heart rate is 150, and I have chest pains. This kid is 35 and a health fiend, a rough and tough cop and the picture of fitness. He's in FL, I am in MA. I said get to the ER, so his wife drives him two blocks to the ER and all they know is he didn't have a heart attack, and they aren't sure what is going on. His blood pressure was too high also. Put him on meds to control heart rate and BP, sent home and referred to his PCP and hopefully a cardiologist.
Between that and the events of the day, I am having a cocktail and debating going down to FL for a week or so.

As some of you may know from a post I posted last year about my mom having dementia, it's slowly progressing to the point that now we are going to have to put her in a home (Southridge in Biddeford) where she will be with her sister and closer to several of her other sisters. This hasn't been an easy task since I am located so far away from her but we are doing what she wants and what we think is best for her. We are getting some push back from my brother and her partner of over 40 years, they want her to live in a home closer to them (Lewiston) but this isn't about them and I can't seem to get that through their heads. Anyways, we are pushing forward and she is going into Southridge possibly this week, it will be comforting to know that she is being taken care of and is closer to her immediate family where they can visit her more often than when she lived in Litchfield. I figured I'd give an update and share it with the group.
AK, my Dad had dementia and it's so gut wrenching. Every time I hear of this with a parent my heart breaks. All you can do is what you are doing. They need to be safe and cared for. It's a slow, agonizing and emotional time. Be assured of my prayers for your Mom.

Thanks. He is much better this morning and has a follow up appointment set. It's very concerning and I also learned he was ignoring this condition for some time before seeking help which I sternly explained he should not have. At least it isn't a heart attack.
