    Default Very Sorry

    Ok everyone, I have an apology to make. I am really sorry I have not been around the last few days and I have neglected greetings to those that have joined. Wednesday I had a choice to make. I had to either be a good friend and physically pay the price for a few days or let this illness change the kind of friend that I am/have always been. I chose to help my friend and I am paying the price.

    My best friends mother was rushed out of the rest home that she has had to live in for 3 years (after breaking her hip) and taken to the hospital. She had an apparent "Fall" that broke the bones that make up her eye socket and fractured her cheek bone in several places. Jan (my best friend) has lived in a suburb of Houston since the late 80's but she still doesn't drive in Houston proper and the hospital that her mother was initially taken to transferred her to the medical center in downtown houston because of the possible brain trauma. By the time she got to the Medical center they had already found out that the had a blood clot behind her eye and many other things wrong.

    Although I am not supposed to drive and I know how lack of sleep and stress affects me I could not let her down and I headed out and spent from Weds through Thurs night in the neuro trauma wing of a hospital in Houston. I went for 39 hours without sleep and I am paying for it now. I did check here from my phone from time to time but by the time I got home I was burned from the lighting (yes, I constantly refreshed my sun block), my right foot was drooping so I had to use the cane constantly and my other ankle was swollen terrible. We won't even discuss the brain fog!

    I am home now but it has taken a very long time to type this post but I felt it important to let you all know that I wasn't ignoring you either in posts or in PM's. I am working on taking care of myself right now and I will be checking but if I don't answer you please don't take it personally. I hope to be back up to a "normal flare" (LOL) by Sat or Sun.

    Hugs to each of you in my WHL family

    Oh Mari, there's no need to appologize. You have to take care of you first to be able to take care of everybody else. You helping your friend when she needs you the most and putting yourself second just shows what a wonderful caring person you are. Please get some much needed well deserved rest. Come back only when you're feeling well rested and relaxed.

    Mari,
    You don't have to apologize for doing what you need to do in life. You are not superwoman, and you have to take care of yourself, too.
    Take good care of yourself and feel better soon!
    Hugs,
    Marla

    You have nothing to apologize for Mari. You do a great job as a mod, and your contributions here are so helpful to so many.
