    Some of you may remember that for about 18 months now my wife, Diane has been struggling with Multiple Sclerosis. Still nothing tragic has happened. She is still doing okay and we are both learning to live with our new lifestyle. She is now confined to a wheelchair and I had to quit my job to be available for her.

    This past week, beginning on Wednesday she began a 3 day treatment as an outpatient at a nearby hospital. We would arrive there at 1:30pm and leave about 4:00pm. Well on the third day, Friday, she had mysterious chest pains and was admitted to ER and has been there since early Friday afternoon getting tested. Seems she has no heart related health issues, but might still not be released until Monday. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    You are a great man to stand by your woman through all this. It is so hard to have to do it all for the both of you and it's a good thing you are twice a man and then some because you need to be. There is little enough that I can do except to encourage and commend you for your labor of love, and to point out the hard but beautiful truth that there is no love without burden. My very best to you both, and especially to you Joseph.

    I know what it's like when your wife have major health problems. It can be very hard. The only thing I can do is to offer some support for you. If you ever need somebody to talk to send me a pm.
    Good luck to you and your wife.

    I know its been very rough for both of you. Its hard adjusting to a new lifestyle. Your wife is lucky to have you for care and support. And you always have your friends here for support as well. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] We care!

    I hope they can find the source of the chest pains and make her feel better. I was just in the ER myself recently and I know its no fun--all the tests and poking and prodding. But hopefully they can find the problem and she'll get the care she needs.

    Hang in there and if I can do anything for you, just message me. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Best wishes to you both.

    God bless you and your wife. May he give you both the continuing strength you need. Your good man, chin up and keep a song in your heart. As with the others I would be glad to help where I could.

    Joseph,

    My wife's mother is an wheel-chair bound MS sufferer, so I know how horrible the condition can be.

    Take good care of her, your love and support are priceless.

    Best wishes

    Whats Multiple Sclerosis? I hope your wife gets better.
    It was very good of you to give up your job for your wife.
    When my mom came home after her major knee surgery, I had to look
    after her, my stepdad couldnt give up his job. My mom had to use
    crutches to move around, it was really bad. But, we got through it,
    and mom is better. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] But, after 10 years or so, she will have to have a knee replacement. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] She will be in a wheelchair for some time. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]
    I really hope your wife gets better, be strong and cheerfull for her.
    You can PM me anytime if you need somebody to talk to.
    Best wishes,
    Dino [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
