    Hi Barbie, I am reaching out to you cause I wonder I we are in very similar Al's boats? My husband was diagnosed 2yrs ago and is now 52. I have 7yr old twin girls. Daddy still functions well so it's not completely obvious yet. But it's all around the corner. In a recent post you told the person it was hard dealing with it and kids. Is their any insight or advice you might have? I am about to hit a crossroads and not a clue how to handle it. Txs u so much, Lisa

    Hi Barbie,
    How are you getting along? I'm hanging in there. I attend a grief support group every two weeks. I've met some new friends through it so that has been good. We don't cry there all the time either. Sometimes, we laugh and share good stories about our love one's. I am on here but don't always post because I was never dad's caregiver so I can't help as much as other. Take care, Kim

    Glad to see that you popped in barbie. I think of you and your family often. I have moved into my dad's home. I actually moved in before he passed away with his blessing. I got myself my own present for Christmas this year to keep myself company. I adopted a Beagle from our local humane society. He gets into mischief but he's stolen my heart. Take care, Kim

    Oh Barbie! I just logged on and saw your post about the loss of your hubby. It just breaks my heart for you. I just went to the funeral of my father-in-law today. It really hit me hard because I know that my dad's time is coming. I am scared. If you ever want to add me I'm on facebook under Kim Stephens Deters. You are in my thoughts and prayers. You were wonderful to your hubby and that is why he survived this monster longer then most. Big huge hug to you. Love always, Kim

    Tim is much better, even has a stronger voice that he had before he got sick. I have been working on detoxing his liver. Glad that you are feeling better this week, I hope that that continues.

    I hope things aren't too tough right now. I know you are a strong woman, but I also know how much work it takes to be strong. I daydream about a day when someone else looks after me, a day when I get up when I want to, go to bed when I want to, and finish a thought before I have to one more thing. Thinking of you.
