I’m very sorry for your loss. Prayers to you and your family. It’s never a good time to lose a loved one but the holiday time seems to be especially hard.

Thinking of you as you lay your family member to rest and hoping for strength for the future

Thank you Kerri, yes it is hard, but knowing he went so fast and wasn't in pain, really he went the best way possible...he drove to church, came home and sat in his chair and left....so peacefully.
The hard part was seeing my dad deal with the loss....

HI Kerri....Thanks....how are you feeling....have you heard anything about this patch you are to get?
Still not so hot but trying to manage. Just got scheduled for late January and follow up with NS the day after. Praying for a good outcome!

How are you doing?
Hi Kerri, well today I woke up with vertigo......I have had it soooo many times this past year, then again I have had a cold more this past year then  I have had in the last twenty years, and the cold meds cause vertigo for me, I reducce the dosage the last time and I was ok no vertigo, and this time, I stayed with that dosage and this time I got it....two days after I stopped taking the meds....ugh....outside of that I am run down and tired....and hoping the new year will change that.

Unfortunately, this year is ending with me losing my dad's brother the Sunday before  Christmas, so this Monday and Tuesday I have his funeral...which I am not looking forward to at  all, I guess no one ever looks forward to them.....but I even more so, since I seem to soak in everyones greif.....I get so overwhelmed.....so I hope the vertigo is gone by then,

Prayers for the good outcome with the NS later in January.
