Thank You's and sad news  
I just wanted to thank everyone for your lovely birthday wishes on September 3rd. I know I haven't been here on LJ very often recently, so I was truly surprised to see all the beautiful birthday posts and the many PM's, V gifts, emails, and ecards. My presence has been so scarce I wouldn't have blamed my f-list if you'd forgotten all about me.

Serious health issues have plagued both my aging parents and my disabled husband for most of the past year, leaving me little time to get online at night. Dealing with everything from my elderly mother being diagnosed with anorexia nervosa to my husband's end-stage chronic kidney disease and being put on dialysis three times a week has been overwhelming. A few of you know that my dad passed away two days before my birthday, on September 1, so needless to say, my family and I have been having a rough couple of weeks. Finding out that so many of you had remembered me was a ray of light at a terribly dark time, as well as physical gifts that came in the mail and personal phone texts, and I want to thank you for that.

I still love QAF and Brian and Justin passionately, and the multiple times I've seen Randy in Cabaret since it opened last January have been the highlight of my existence. So don't count me out yet!

Sending a big hug!
You and your family are in my thoughts as you cope with such difficult times. I was saddened to read about the death of your father. I lost my mother earlier this year and know one is never ready for a parent to go.

I'm sending a virtual hug and lots of positive energy - hope it helps a little bit.

Re: Sending a big hug!
Thank you so very much for your kind words. Sorry for the loss of your mom. No, one is never ready for a parent to go. That's very true.

You've been a wonderful support, and I thank you so much for that. ♥

Hugs,
Linda

*Super big hug* I hope your mom will get well soon. I had that eating disorder so if you want or need to talk about it with me you can. I'm sorry to hear about your father, I know you all loved him very much. Hopefully the treatments will help your husband out. *sad smile*

My mom is a little better now. Sorry to hear you were suffering from that disease also. Hope you're okay now. ♥

Please accept my condolences on the death of your father. I didn't realize he had died recently. I am so sorry. I certainly know how it feels to experience the loss of your father, and now my brother.

Thank you for your words of sympathy as well. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers, Linda. ~Kim

Thank you so very much for these beautifully kind words. They really did help when I was in a dark place.

I'm sorry for the loss of your father, too. Similar situation for us both. Losing our dads at the beginning of September so close to our birthdays.

Your positive energy and good vibes were wonderful to receive. ♥

Hearts, Linda
