ebwilkie, congrats on being a great grandma.

On the sleep issue.  I have been able to sleep for five hours for the last few days.  It is the most sleep I have gotten in three years.  I feel a lot better.  I hope it continues.  Being up in the middle of the night is no fun.

I just found out that I'm going to be a great grandma for the first time!  They got married May 31st of this year and the baby is due May 31, 2015!  Isn't that neat?  It makes me happy but when I think about my husband - he would have been overjoyed.  I wish he was around to share in the happiness.  Great grandma - sounds old doesn't it!

Oh man in the middle of the night I awoke from a dream about Gordy details are sketchy BUT he came home from work late at night like midnight... he worked at a  711 type store ( which he did NOT ) went to  sleep in another room... I jumped up and ran to him he said he didn't want to wake me... I started kissing his face... his beautiful face then I woke up... over joyed at the fact that I HAD a dream... then sad because  it wasn't real....  has me all twisted up ....

Barry I am close to your time at three years and eight months and find myself up a lot in the middle of the night. I usually go to work at 4 in the morning but I find myself up often during the night perhaps because some thought enters my mind reminding me of where I was just four years ago. I guess I'll never shake it and maybe deep down inside, I don't want to.

Hope your day goes well.

Hi all. Life will always get you. It's been so hard since Risa's illness. Im not religious. I try and cope but it's so hard. I wish I was stronger. But sometime I can't stand it.I need you guys and so glad you listen. 12 45 and I have to be up at 5. Life rolls around in my head and I'm grateful for you all. . 3yrs 4 months. Hoping for peace for all of us.

My husband used to visit me in my sleep...he doesn't anymore.

ONE time, shortly after he passed, I felt him in our bed... really, and truly felt him in our bed... I remember being completely freaked out at first, and then suddenly so calm.  I asked him to come back anytime, and he hasn't.

man I miss him
