      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

  1. I've always been close to my dad and through the years he had got congestive heart failure, over a month ago the doctor told us he was in last stage heart failure, our lives shifted to taking care of dad and what he needed, then a few weeks ago, the doctor told us that his kidney's were shutting down, since then he has been bed ridden, the hospice nurse came today, she pointed out my dad's swollen stomach area and told me that was a sign of him backing up inside, she told me she thinks he has about two weeks to live. I didn't cry, I just stood there and said "okay", as if she just told me he has a appointment somewhere and I made a mental note of it. My mind is filled with thoughts of what I need to do and prepare for that. I thought to myself, why am I not crying? Did this ever happen to anyone?
