I haven't posted here much about this, but difficult child has recently spiraled into a horrible depression which was followed by a horrible kidney infection and hospital stay. Her overall health has been precarious for months, at best, but in the past week I see definite improvement in her mood and attitude. Then, this morning E called and told me her favorite boss died of a heart attack last night...he was a lovely kind man, only 52, a long standing member of the community with a large extended family. Gina was very close to him and his sister. If you can, send up a prayer for his family. On a more selfish level, I'm very worried about how this will impact my difficult child...she is still not stable and she tends to shut down when things become overwhelming. E is with her today and I'll probably see her later. If you can send up a prayer for her as well, I'd appreciate it. Thank you!
