Already been doing lots of that. And I'll head into the church on Friday and light some candles for you all.

Oh my God, Kim! I have no idea what to say. I missed this and feel so badly. First, the prayer circle here is powerful so know your brother is in Good Hands now.

I have to day that I am not lawsuit happy either but this is not an accident. The initial mistake might have been but was followed by unspeakable negligence. Your brother will need compensation in order to make sure that he is able to adapt to this atrocity! Please make sure your sister advocates for him. And again, I am so sorry that I missed your post

Oh, Kim! I'm praying as hard as I can, right now! I agree with what Nancy said. Your brother is going to need financial help with this! They should pay for their mistake!

Bless you all! How is your mom handling it all?

Hey, all! I'm slowly catching up, it's been nutty around here. My great grandmother died the other day so I've had a very long weekend. We weren't close or anything, but it's still difficult to lose someone.

Kim- oh my word!!!! How awful! I am so terribly sorry for everything that is going on

It's going to be another busy one around here. First of all, we are leaving for WDW this coming Saturday so I'll be a packing nut this week! I can't wait though. I need a break from everything that's been going on around here.

Dinner today was Subway. No time to cook with a funeral.

My prayers to all who are affected by Sandy. Nothing going on here (TN) except it's 49 degrees. That I can deal with

Wow! Prayers to everyone with all that is going on. We are coping and I am just looking forward to PIO's arrival.

It will not be without grief. Fran is in pain and will kvetch and be miserable throughout. We will just have to perservere and not let it ruin our fun. She tends to do that to me. I have to learn to not let her. If I let her take over my life I will never have fun.

I think I deserve a little fun for all the time I have put in. She thinks that God has decided she deserves to be punished. I actually think that God has given her this awful situation so that she will realize what she had before is good enough and needs to continue with life in her somewhat incapacitated state becuase it could be much worse. I think this is the much worse and she needs to appreciate the "not so bad".

I could never tell her that because she would go ballistic, but does that make sense to the rest of you?

I have a few hard days ahead of me and need to get to bed early to deal with it! Good night!

Makes perfect sense.

Just checking in to see how Kimmar's brother is doing. Kim- your family continues to be in my prayers.

brandi- You all set? I feel as if I have bought every store out! I started sopping on Thursday to avoid the crowds. I gave Marisa a list on Friday and then I shopped again on Saturday. Sunday rolled around and i spotted my favorite store open when I was coming home from work so I stopped in again so I could pick up "a few more things" and some things for W. Then Marisa and Jeff went out and i asked for more donuts and some Bud Lime for Buddy. And I look like a lightweight compared to Marisa

Allison- Sweetie, you need to get some support. It sounds like all of the pain has really had a devastating effect on Fran and by extension on you. People tend to worry about the person who is suffering the physical symptoms of an illness but forget that shoulder who is holding their partner up. I think that this has gone on long enough and that you need some bolstering up. There is no way you can continue to do this alone. I am not saying that Fran's pain and suffering is not valid but I think that you are under-appreciated and exhausted and need some help or you are going to collapse.

Okay- we are under a heavy storm warning. This storm should be a doozy and the coastal area of the mid-Atlantic States and new England are probably going to be hit very hard. We are inland but the winds are predicted to be strong so hopefully the power will not go down. The Sound communities are in trouble if this happens the way the weather folks predict with the rivers running backwards. The water gets pushed into the Sound and has no way to return to open ocean so the surge is profound. These communities hve not recovered from irene so please those folks in your prayers.

I'll be back as long as we have power but please stay safe all of my friends in the path!

Alison, I can tell you from my experiences, that some lesson are learned the hard way.

I went through a lot of hard/bad situations in my previous life, and can tell that my life NOW is a blessing, and it does allow me to appreciate everything and know that it is worth everything I went through to get here.

Keep up your strength and I believe it will pay off in the end, Fran will appreciate everything and be a much happier person for it.

Hugs and prayers coming your way.

I can tell you that we have plenty of germ killer in this house, we may run out of food but germ killer is well stocked!

I have cooked enough food for four days, that can be reheated or cooked on the grill. Most of the perishable products should be consumed by the second day without any problems.

One of the better things this time, than the July power outage (Drencho sp?) is that it is cold now. We can place things in the garage to keep them cool, and no need for air! We can snuggle under the blankets.

We made sure we had all our medication filled and plenty of water.

I think we are set on everything else, got candles out around the house, with things to light them.

We are expected to have around 70MPH winds, and I know we will be out of power, the power company says up to 2 weeks! Ughhhh.

The wind is going to be our biggest problem.

Stay safe everyone.
