Hello Nitabug thanks for the offer of friendship, I am still working my way around the site.

I am sorry your son is needing to go through chemo, I hope he is handling it well.  I am an RN and have helped many through that rough road, including my Husband and Mother.  Any help I can give or even just a listen, just holler!
