  •  Heavens! Please don't apologize for expressing (8+ / 0-)

    normal human emotions.  Anyone who has ever had to watch someone they love more than their own life be at the mercy of a life-threatening condition recognizes the fear and anxiety you are facing.  

    I like to laugh and tell people that all the grey hair on my head came from parents, not my child.  It's true.  I spent years taking care of them and that kind of stress you have from trying to "keep it together" so you can wend your way through the corporo-medical system that passes for health care is just hell and takes a toll.  

    My heart goes out to you, TexMex.  Please know that you can share the good and the bad.  It's not being a wimp to be worried, afraid, sad, angry, confused and it's not whining to express it.  It's human.  And compassion and empathy are supposed to be what makes us better than the crowd who turn their backs on others' pain and smugly believe that those who suffer somehow deserve their fates.  

    You are amongst friends here, so vent away!
