Things like that are scary as hell, of course you're gonna want to talk about it. I'm glad she's in the hospital though, it's the best place for her. Chin up. :) I lit a lil white candle for her. I'm not terribly religious but I believe in thinking good, healing thoughts for people.

Shimi, I know how you feel. Last year my mom had back surgery and had a lot of complications and ended up in the hospital for a week and then in rehab for 2 weeks. All the worrying just about made me sick. I was glad to have the support of my forum friends. It helps to talk about it so don't worry. we're here for you.

Understandable and please post as you need to!


My cousin's viewing was tonight. Her sister apparently collapsed after seeing her. I just wish I could be there, I wish I could comfort her in some way. I read her obituary posted online tonight and I had to stop myself from crying again.

:( That must be incredibly hard for your family and for you, Angelic. I didn't get a chance to say before but my condolences.

I lost my Dad unexpectedly in 2000 just months before my wedding. I still have trouble wrapping my brain around it 11 years later.

I'm sorry Angelic... it seems a lot of us are in a rough place right now.

Thank you everyone for understanding. I actually have been part of other forums for longer... but I feel the most at home talking to you guys. I <3 you all.

Ok Change of subject, this thread is getting depressing.

The betta bug has bitten, I am thinking of taking my 45gal that is cycling and then converting it into a sorority... I can either section off a few gallons for Alpha, or get him a separate 2.5gal tank. I would rather section off a few gallons, that would be much cheaper and easier. I wonder how stressful it would be on him.

Betta:
Males - Alpha(CT), Unnamed Dragon(HMPK)
Females - Red, Green, Teal, Blue, Pina, Helena

Dragons:
Xerxes

Thank you.

I'm so sorry to hear about your father. I don't think I could ever grasp that either. :(

My grandmother passed away 4 months before I was married. Though she wasn't my parent, she helped raise me and she meant the world to me. I wish she could have been there for that, and to meet my kids.

Those are the same thoughts I've had. Stuff he missed. Plus, I just wanna call him and have a gabfest like we used to. We could burn up a phone line. <3

Her funeral is today. I wanted to post this as sort of a memorial.

She was so young. That's such a tragedy.
