A while back... I had asked that you send my frau a note to make her feel good.

    And she had recieved hundreds of em from this place and a couple of other forums I frequent.

    I want to express my graditude of your kind gesture to her on my behalf. I know she was at first a bit overwhelmed, but in her eyes I saw she was delighted so many of you thought to engage her for a moment.

    Thank you for your kindness.

    My Susan passed on June 6th while I was holding her hand.

    She was told in 2006 she had 500 days... when she was hospitalized in 2008 (almost to the day) she was never the same. ANd when they brought her back from the brink, and she was able to come home for Thanksgiving dinner, , I changed the way I cared for her in our home, and I was able to spend six more years with the only woman I know that ever really chose me. I was a lucky man to have her in my world... and even luckier to have her want to keep me in her world when she had options all around her telling her she should choose them.

    So if I am being a bit distant, or unresponsive to anything, I am doing it to save my sanity... not because I am not interested in what is said, or commented on.

    So sorry to hear of you loss Bob!
    Sounds like you did all you could to make the days left count.
    As much as you appreciated Susan, it seems she was fortunate to have you too!

    Best regards.....

    Sorry about your loss of Susan. It sounds like she was a lucky woman to have someone care about her as much as you did.

    Prayers as you go through the grieving process.

    You have my sympathies. Dealing with my wife's major medical, I fully appreciate what it takes.

    ps. If it weren't for insurance companies, we would only have Congress to hate.
