It is sad how little time most people can find for friends and family going through care-giving and/or significant health-related problems. It is a busy world and illness, aging, etc. are subjects that often times seem to make others uncomfortable... Yet it is so important to have support during such difficult times!
That is one of the reasons that a site such as this is so great - many of us have experienced the silence of family and/or friends when their support or suggestions might have made a world of difference. Meanwhile, dear heart, just know we are here for you.
