Been there, done that.

    You may PM me anytime if you wish to talk.

    This thread reminds me of why I spend so many hours here ... what a caring group of people we have here. So glad this story had a happier ending than it could've been.

    Best wishes to you and your family as you fight this uphill battle ... you'll survive and you'll all be stronger for it. Take care.
