Thank you so much for the support.  It is slowly getting better.  One day at a time. 

Of course, while this is going on in my life, another issue has reared it's ugly head.

My step-daughter and her husband are getting a divorce.  They have 4 kids. So, life just got more complicated.  I really hate this world at times.
