  1. How terrible for you all. I am sorry for your loss.
  2. Also, family members can be strong and effective advocates. When my parents were struggling in care, I would be the bad cop and other relatives would be the good cops so the patient did not have to vulnerable. How awful you are going through this, I am so sorry. I hope you recover quickly and can be discharged ASAP.
  3. I do love Dr Seuss, but when you know better, you do better. Times have changed and it is appropriate to retire offensive stereotypes.
  4. I am sorry for your loss. It won't be easy to process that relationship. Hugs to you.
  5. Imagine the hubris of these people.
  6. If the wedding is still many months out, emotions may cool enough that even if parents are not invited, they are less likely to crash it. If you really think they may crash the wedding, hire a security guard. For family photos I would encourage the groom to have photos with people who have been important to him - his chosen family. Have people seated across both sides of the aisle no matter whose "side" they represent. I think you should talk a lot about how happy you are to have him be part of your family when you speak at the reception. I know that would mean a lot. You can just drop
  7. I am so sorry to read this. We had a similar disaster pre-covid and I am still traumatized when I hear water running unexpectedly. The workers were basically in our house one day for about 6 hours, setting up massive fans and removing drywall and ruined items. Having windows and doors open and avoiding the work area will facilitate the work they are doing anyway. One worker came to check the moisture levels daily and removed the fans when the subfloors were dry. You definitely need to get this service done professionally or you will end up with bigger problems in the future. Your family
  8. I use TSP (buy it at a hardware store) as indicated on the label. I haven't done rooms with high ceilings before but I suspect you will need to do the entire wall; stopping at a certain height will probably be noticeable. Good luck! https://www.instructables.com/How-To-Clean-Surfaces-with-TSP/
  9. My husband also had significantly low-iron due to bleeding hemorrhoids, also had the scoping procedures that came out normal, and has been on supplements for a long time (10+ years). It sounds right based on our experience and I would not worry about cancer if you have no other symptoms.
