Thank you all for the continued pixies. To answer some of you - yes I have been to counseling as has DD. I think all the counseling in the world couldn’t prevent me from reliving it. Unless you’ve sat at your spouses bedside and held their hand while their gravely ill it’s hard to understand what that does to a person. Especially when you’re in your 40’s and have so many hopes and dreams. I am truly blessed to have the tight circle of friends that I do. We consider each other family - most of us have been there for each other more than blood family. To my kids they’re aunts and uncles, the kids are cousins and they’re all my nieces and nephews. I just happen to be the one closest to my girlfriend and she knows I understand a lot of what she’s going through. I’m grateful to be here for her and nothing will change that.
Please keep those pixies coming! In the last 18 hours they discovered he has MRSA, his bilirubin count is rising and he has fluid filling his abdomen. And all with a “we don’t know why” answer to my girlfriend. It’s insanity what has transpired over the last week. Insanity.

Oh no, I feel so bad for you and of course feel bad for your buddy and his wife and the rest of the guys. I imagine it feels like bandages being ripped from an open wound. Hang in there!

Oh no! I'm still praying and wishing for your friend's full recovery. No, I can't imagine what it's like to have been in your place. I have, however, sat at the bedside of my DD multiple times, signed DNRs, and prayed. Can't tell you how many times I've been told "There is no answer, no reason, no xxxx". Thankfully, we've always gotten through her battles with her coming home.

Many, many more for all of you, but most especially your sick friend. I pray the doctors can find a way to heal him.
