Are you artistic off the computer, too? (A decent stick figure is a victory for me.)


Not sure, but I might post, even if no one read the posts. (I like to vent, LOL.)

However, can you imagine what DU2 would be like if Enthusiast mocked my OP's every day?

As far as you, I don't know how to say this without seeming indifferent, but you know that is not the case, so here goes.

I am always happy to see your screen name on the board, but I don't mind if you don't post. This is what I tell my younger relatives: "You're always welcome, but never obligated." I really hate feeling guilty. I hate even more if people feel guilty because of me. So, you never have to explain or apologize.

I am sorry to hear your brother has been in the hospital so much. I promise you that you are making his hospitalizations easier on him, even if you just call. You are so positive and caring and intelligent and enjoyable and talented and on and on. Who wouldn't feel better after hearing from you?

Something encouraging to look at or listen in a hospital room is always welcome, too. Don't know about him, but I enjoyed magazines more than books because short articles required less energy and focus. And, if the doctor allows, some snacks or food wouldn't hurt. (Even on all liquid diet, though lemon ice or other flavored ices are usually allowed.) One woman in the hospital when I was had brought her own pillows and pillowcases (hand embroidered, no less) with her. So, it depends what comforts him.

Being in the hospital is no fun, but neither is trying to keep a patient relatively happy. So, big hugs to both of you.
