Hi Gwamma. The results could have been better, but they also could have been a lot worse. Sounds like he's getting good care. You're right, though, it's changed your role for a while and that never feels good. I don't know about your other cyber friends here, but I suspect they'll agree with me when I say this is a safe place for you to come and just be yourself. Venting, whining, raging, moaning, and making inappropriate jokes - they're all good here . Especially if it means you can keep on keeping on in your real life. We'll be here.
