There is physical pain that is sure to go away, but the strength you get from all of this, and the people gathered here spiritually today, are timeless and priceless. I personally haven't met you, but I'd be more than happy to get that orange juice for you, accomodate the IV's, even give you some of my blood if need be, if I could. I'm sure more here are willing to, 24hrs 'round the clock. I also think it's pretty neat of all you guys to stand beside her during this time, this is what being American is all about. I get goose bumps as I type this. This, my friends, is what unites us as a country, a nation, a people. United we stand.

For what I have read on your posts and other's speaking of you, you're such a down to earth person, have such a big heart, and transparently seem like a friend anyone should have, and the friend we really all need. I'd happily say that these are probably good reasons this thread has accrued so many pages, because that's who you are, and one of the few awesome and outstanding human beings this world needs, and we recognize that. You have a strong spirit, and ours are with you to provide you with that extra ounce of strength you need. There's no reason in this world why you should feel alone, because you're not. There will come the day where you'll sit back and laugh it all off, and every day that passes, you're one day closer to it. Pray, not like He's some mythical creature, but like He's there and listening. You'll be surprised at what you get. From me, receive a big hug and a brotherly kiss on the forehead, you've been an angel that's watched over us all.

Wow. A couple years ago "Wolfe" dragged me to this forum telling me of the really nice people here and how helpful everyone was. I lurked here for a while before I signed up and saw for myself how right she was. These posts here prove this beyond all doubt.

When I read the second post I almost think you've met her. You seem to really understand her. I'd better not get too mushy here. She knows where I live and might headslap me if I do.

I learned from my mom that if you have anything good to say about or to someone, do it while they're alive. My mom lost her sister and couldn't tell her how much she loved her while she lived. I'm a big fan of character and values, and, for the life of me, I cannot find a single post where she has written something that either has a hidden meaning or agenda, any evil feelings/motive of any sort, never condescending, seems to write what she does with a smile, and a generally easygoing and loving disposition. That hasn't stopped her from being a fighter and handling her business. Have I met her? No. But I'd love to. I can say that I've been thinking about her and praying every day. I hold her in high esteem, as do the rest of us.

I'm glad you like the name and I hope your daughter does too.

I did get a good nights sleep and I will again tonight. Doc's been knocking me out every other day these last few. I still haven't gotten a handle on the nightmares and have them religiously on my off days, but the sleep I'm getting does help me feel better. Now I hope I can figure them out and banish them! It's getting easier to push the thoughts of giving up out of my head because I'm not so exhaused all the time.

BTW I posted pics of little Mandy in the Caturday thread. I'd have stuck them here, but my haji-net connection is so slow it makes me yearn for dial-up. Picture threads can take hours to load here.

Thier virgins will be too busy trying to patch them up to do anything else for them.

That's good advice. I've heard stories about taking control of your dreams. You keep saying to yourself what you want to dream about over and over again. Here's to hoping you have sweet dreams.

Actually Diet Dr. Pepper is good but Diet A&W Root Beer is better.

Yep, I been trying that. Not having any luck there. My shrink says the only way I'm going to stop having nightmares is if I accept the fact that I almost died from my injuries. She says I know it, but I don't "know" it if that makes any sense. I've been trying to get my mind around that ever since she told me some weeks ago.

I'm hoping that one of these days after a good night's sleep something will click into place.

Sorry, okie, I didn't know that.

Anyway, we have some pretty good picnic spots here for you...

Okie Memorial Area

Normally there wouldn't be a zombie in the foreground.


ETA: Hope the visual aid helps, LW.

That's very true! Dreams and nightmares are a way of your mind trying to tell you something, the only way to get it to shut up is to get the message. Work on that, baby, you have to internalize it, and those nightmares will go away.

okie, the lovely LW, deserves better than Spam sammiches. You should be embarrased. I'm shocked!!. You should at least get a basket full of them 2# burgers you were talkin about. Course there probably wouldn't be none left for LW, after you got through.

Of course we all know LW, is too much of a lady, to complain, if you did take Spam sammiches.

LW, sweetie you get some rest.

Here's how simple it is...

Grab the girl, put her in your Dodge, drive to Colorado Springs, stop at the grocery store down the street from me, get some spam & tater salad, Diet Dr. Pepper, stop by my house, I gots the hook up for the beer, drive 20 minutes up Ute pass to Rampart Reservoir, park the car... picnic on. I'd recommend anytime before October.. never know what kind of weather you'll get at 9,000 feet.

Sit back, watch the sun hit the North Face of Pike's Peak. Slowly digest spam.

.................................................................................................... ....
"Almost dying" really means one thing ... you are alive and kicking!
To strong to die. Spitting in the Devils eye.

It means God has a plan for your life.

You are still in His playbook and He is going to run a few plays where He needs you to throw a perfect block, knock down a pass, sack the QB, or recover a fumble for great field position. You might be on the bench right now (you took a big hit for the team) but in a couple of plays you get the ball back, go back on offense, and it will be time to gain some yardage and score a touchdown.

Never fear. Never. We will hold them until you get back on the field.

The team is rallying for you, and the fans in the stands are screaming your name! There's plenty of time on the clock!
We haven't even reached halftime but there's no doubt who is going to win this game.

And the cheerleading squad is deep and loud.
Go Lone_Wolfe Go! Go Lone_Wolfe Go! Go Lone_Wolfe Go! Go Lone_Wolfe Go!


Sorry about the football metaphor. I tried to come up with something featuring cats, but I'm a dog guy.

Awwwww, darn. Being grounded aint fun. But you can wax my Mustang if you want. Plus I wouldn't complain if you rub MY feet.

I'm doing OK today, got lots of sleep last night.

What was that stuff they gave me anyway.....

Thank you for the kind words Slobberchops. FWIW, Beware Owner did more than give me goose bumps, he had me bawling like a little girl. At least I AM a girl.

Thank you for the prayers for both of us.

BTW, that pup in your avatar is gorgeous! Do you have a bigger pic you can PM me?
