what started as a bad couple of months for us turned our to be
a bad couple of years....my husbands illness started in april
and in may they found my uncle who had gone missing the day
after scott went into the hospitol. as it turns out he had
fallen into a rather large creek and drown. we were lucky to
find him. then shortly after that our house burned down....i
tried my best to get in to save my birds but the fire was so
intense we were lucky to get out with our lives.....i haven't
the heart to bring new babies into the house again because i
would hate for something like that to happen again. in may of
last year my three children were in a car accident and two had
to be lifelined to the hospitol....they are all fine now but
then in august my second oldest brother died of a massive heart
attack at the age of 43....i bet you can understand why i'm
praying for an uneventful year!!!!
i would very much luv to have another tiel and hope to convince
myself soon that it will work out just fine. i miss linda that
used to frequent the board....jill
