[at-l] More than slightly off.....

Hi Frank,

You're pretty disappointed, sounds like. I'm sorry you're feeling the loss,
and also get  perfectly why you're waiting. Just wanted to say you're not
alone. I hope you keep walking, whether for 6 days or six weeks or six
months. When I walked, I had a miraculous time of low attachments at home.
Now that I have a home and a husband and some compelling community work to
do, I would leave except for short periods.
And any of that could change at any time, I realize.
To everything  there is a season...

>My dad has started getting a lot less healthy. Pneumonia three times in a
year and a half. Blood clots. Using a walker or cane all the time. Confused
a good deal of the time, but not Alzheimer's. But he's happy. And we finally
talked for hours about the thing that was between us and holding us apart
for the last 35 years.

>My wife has a few problems that are killing her. Two kinds of heart
failure. Multiple collapsed discs. Not a candidate for surgery because of
the underlying health issues. 40mg of Lortab and 200 of Ultram a day. Blood
pressure fluctuating. She's started fainting now and then.

>I just can't leave for 5-6 months. I'm not that selfish. Sad right now.
Will be better.

>Lots of other stuff. No need to go into all of it. I waited too long. Now I
have to wait until after they're gone. I hope that's a long time, but am not
very optimistic. Very tired. Don't know what else to say. Don't know if I
should have said anything.

>I don't regret the choice. Just the reasons that I had to make it.
