    I have had some folks ask where I have been and others say they have missed me being in chat. I appreciate the PMs and the concern.

    I have been on only for fleeting minutes since last Friday when my dad became sick enough to have to go to the ER at dawn. He was admitted to the hospital with viral pneumonia and secondary bacterial infection.

    My mother is not in the best of health either so I have been staying up at their house with my mother and taking her back and forth to the hospital.
    I have had very limited computer time.

    The good news is my dad was released today and seems to be doing pretty well thus far.

    If he is still doing well by midmorning tomorrow I will return home and back to my normal routine. That routine consists of being on BOC several hours every day. I am about to suffer withdrawl here with not having been able to be on lately. LOL
    Last estimate on posts I have missed is well over 4000. So, I have lots to catch up on and I can hardly wait!

    Again, thanks to all for the messages and thinking of me. I miss y'all!

    Hi Barb.......thanks for the info about your dad. I am also so happy to hear that he got to come home and seems to be doing much better. You are a good daughter, Miss Barb. I'm sure your mom appreciates you staying with her in her time of need. If she actually realized the BOC withdrawal you're suffering from she'd appreciate it even more:lol: We're all keeping you and your family in our prayers. We love you, Cattledogz!!! Keep the faith, Tanya

    Barb, in the FWIW dept., there are pneumonia shots for the elderly. I know cuz I get 'em... Maybe your folks don't qualify as elderly, I don't have a clue.
