You may indeed become an actor we all will get to watch...wouldn't it be great if you landed a TV series.  I would have the pleasure of telling everyone I KNOW YOU.    ;)

Dave, I know it can be a hassle for the fitting process.  It took over a year when a company {which I won't name} kept messing me around.  If it doesn't fit, YOU will have a hard time of it.    :(      Hope they fix it soon.

Gosh jack, that isn't what was planned...but steve is right, you shall get thru this with flying colors.  It isn't fun being in the hospital and especially in a strange {not home} place.    :(  Keep us updated, and remember your "new undies are not for long"    ;)

  What a beautiful bio of your wonderful mother.  No doubt you all think she is the greatest MOTHER in the world and no-one else's comes close.  You are right., she is.   I imagine there are alot of those Mothers out there that have families what feel the same as you.  And that's ok.  I remember that I was not brought up the same way children are today., we had chores and a lot of love, but had our Mothers at home helping to train us for the adults we were to become.  My mother also lost my Dad when she was 38yrs. and raised four of us by herself.  Cooked great meals and was always there for us.  Then she knew there would be some years between when social security would end for the children and she would have no income.  She went to beauty school and opened her own shop. She's gone now and I know she is still watching over us.   BTW I raised my boys the same way & it is paying off.

I don't know what you do for a living, but you certainly could have been a journalist or writer...you did a terrific job telling us about the Mother you loved thru your life.  They are or seem to be always there just when you need them, don't they.


PS:  you made this lady shed acouple tears!

Chuck, mine r about always @ night also.  Feels like someone stabbing me & of course u can not hold still.  I still have those in my missing leg & foot though.  Sometime I use heating pad and it works {not all the time} but sometime it does help.  I do not sleep without an elastic stocking on my missing part of leg & foot., thats a{ have to have item }for me.  I notice it is not in the missing parts ....{what is left of ur leg}?

Can they go in and cauterize that nerve?  Hope u can find something to help.

Steve, Guzz,  I share your pain for the victims of this event. I live close to Boston. Let's remember, however, that these events are always politicized and more and more freedoms are taken away each time one of these events occur. Anyone who is paying attention can see that freedom of speech is being taken away as is the right to bear arms. Look at any government which has disarmed the populace and see what has followed. I won't comment further as this history is well documented for anyone who cares to research it. This whole event smells as yet another false flag operation as was 9/11, the London 7/7 event, the train bombings in Spain just to name a few of the more recent events. They always seem to be running a "drill" at the same time the actual event occurs! What are the odds?

Dannyy, I also see where U are coming from.,  some R trying to take the freedoms we hold so dear in R country, and yes we could end up like the countries that have no say in what their governments are involved in.  It breaks my heart that the family whose little boy was killed...his sister was one that had an amputeed limb & the mother has head injuries.  These people R the worst cowards that could exist.  We now R hearing they have spotted one of the bags that held a pressure cooker & also have a young man they R checking out in the vicinity.  IF HE IS THE ONE! please let us be smart enough to give him a trial and then NO MERCY!!  No jail for life...death - know that seems  harsh , but if we would, just maybe it will help them think in the future about these senseless killings of innocent people & babies.  Sorry for Venting.

  Great stories guys.  Love it. :)  It normally does not bother kids, they just accept it and go right on.  It's some of the adults that I would like to give a swift kick in the bum.
