After a long haul son is now out of the hospital I am happy to report. Being ill so long now he is trying to regain hours at his job and attempt catch up with his housing before losing it, another brick in the wall. Thank you for his well wishes and kind words.
The after effects of the travel and stress plus financial fallout took a huge toll on every aspect of my own life, even causing a medical problem. Life after the kids grow up and move on is no picnic for a mother for sure. They are bigger with bigger problems. My usual plodding forward and just doing what needs to be done attitude equates to clicking knees, insomnia and upset stomach where stress is concerned apparently now! Oh to be in my thirties again.
This too shall pass and updating will return in blogland. I can do this!
