"Amen! Without my mini Schnauzer Avery, who was my husband's baby, I would likely not have gotten out of the house the first month. Fretting over and trying to help him wound up helping me. Something to be grateful for."

"Hello Anna, I am sorry about your sad mornings. I do have a pattern but it is different. From about 4 PM until around 7 pm I struggle. That isn't to say that I never have sad mornings or sadness at mid-day for that matter, but late afternoon…"

"Athena I hope the patch works. At 9 weeks I have already begun to think about what happens if and when I need that driver after a test or surgery. It's bound to happen and while I do have friends who will step in, it is not the same. I miss…"

Averysmom,

Feel free to write to me at any time that feels good for you.  I can share with you many things that you can expect while on this journey.  In almost every case you will find some common feelings that everyone shares and then there will be those unique moments that you will have as your remember Steve.
