    Oh, dear. Another back surgery. This at least probably explains your continued pain. So sorry another big surgery is in your future & family life has been difficult too. Please heed Jennifer's advice above. She makes a lot of sense. To get you healthy and healing eventually you somehow need to keep that part separate from your personal physical health. Concentrate on you not the things that can't be controlled. I know--easy for me to say. Please know that you are always sent many positive thoughts and prayers. Janet

    My life just keeps getting worse and worse, My granddaughter was taken away from my daughter. The cops do not believe that it was a accident. She is going into foster care

    Please pray for us. Tomorrow we go to court to see if we can get temporary custody. Also, seeing about visitation...so far we have not had any. In addition, the baby has been nursed only in her life and is refusing a bottle with formula. They are pushing a syringe down her throat with formula .

    Please pray

    Court today was a joke. It started at 8:30. Our lawyer did not show up until 8:45. She did not even know the baby's name. She had not looked thru her notes at all. My daughter was offered 2 hours a week visitation No one knew where the baby was. Some said tht he was still in the hospital. others said that she was in a foster home. This is such a nightmare

    Please pray for my daughter. She has given up. She wants to get rid of all of the baby's things because she feels that the baby will never come home. I am very afraid that she might do something stupid

    Melissa...is anyone with her?
    is there a way a court can declare she should be in the hospital
    as a danger to herself...i think the courts call it a 5150 in CA...
    and that way she could be monitored for a few days...
    perhaps long enough to get her on medication to help with
    her depression...??
    there must be some way for her to be watched or under
    supervision of some kind for a temporary amount of time...
    for her OWN safety...??
