I will be praying for all of you Kamala. These times are the hardest to bear and no one can take the burden from you. I do hope you and Bill can find strength in all the prayers going your way.

Kamala, sending you strength and peace...I am sorry to hear you're going through this again so soon. Be kind on yourself, try to get some sleep and good nutrition to help cope with the stress you're under. I haven't had to go through loss of parents yet, but I know it is an overwhelming time. ((((HUGS))))

Thank you all for your support and prayers and good thoughts and positive energy coming our way but especially for my mother-in-law and the man I married...her son.

This journey is very hard and Martha has fought the ravishes of MS for nearly 30 years. But the disease has robbed her muscles until now she is bed ridden and the natural atrophy of the body once its completely bed ridden is inevitable.

Fortunately she is doing better in hospice and the focus is making her comfortable. I am regretful she could not get into a chamber for HBO (Hyperbarics) just like we use for diving accidents as I know the increased 02 flow would help accelerate the healing even with the nutritional challenges. And other countries have had success treating MS but we do not recognize the power of 02 for many ailments other countries have success with. And while persistent wound healing is one of the modalities that US docs will prescribe HBO or oxygen therapy for...and she had persistent wounds that would not heal...they did not give her this valuable treatment. :(

In any event...I've had some time to play catch up on work and I am extremely appreciative of the support this amazing community offers its members. :thankyou:
