Bless your heart. You have every right to scream. Sounds like things really piled up on you. I never could understand why that happens to some people and not others. I will just say that with all of that there has to be some blue skys ahead somewhere :!:

Keep your chin up. I have a neighbor who had one of those tears and it pretty much healed itself now.

Thanks for everyone's support and love.

I would have responded sooner, but my Internet has been a snails pace for the last 2 days. Can't really do anything. Takes like 10-15 minutes of trying to be able to get to a message to read. We'll see if I can even get this response posted.

Thanks again.
