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!

Thank you so very much for these kind words when I was in a very dark place. Things are a little better now. You have been a great friend ever since I joined LJ, and I thank you for always being a ray of sunshine when people need it most. ♥

Hugs, Linda
