cross your fingers, shit I'd have my fingers crossed, toes crossed, legs crossed, arms crossed, eyes crossed. The only thing I wouldn't have crossed would be my butt cheeks ... cause I guy's gotta take a crap.

You can do 2 weeks standing on your head ... you'll be home soon ... hang tough.

Been a rough few weeks here. Started my own group therapy. Any one else been through "CPT" group?

My father tried to kill himself by stabbing himself in the neck with a fork. He is in the VA psych ward as we speak. He was in 'Nam with 101st airborne for two years. He has end stage alzheimers now. It has become too much for my mother with trying to care for him 24/7. So... my mother and I have spent the last few days looking at nursing homes. We have done it all now and he will go from the VA straight to the nursing home and will stay there permanently. I feel for him. He retired from the army a CSM. He was a drill sergeant and was a very proud man. Alzheimers is a real bitch.

Thank ya brother. Times does go on. I have not been able to grieve a little for him or feel anything really for his going to nursing home. Really shines a light on my own inability to feel.

Well shit ... just doesn't seem fair that a man can go from strong and proud to weak and fragile. But then again, life aint 'bout fair.

Sorry to you and your mom, but also a note of congrats to both of you for taking care of him. You folks made a tough call, but one that puts your father's needs in the hands of those best capable of meeting them.

Stay proud for your father and strong for your mother.
