I'm new here and looked to see if I could find this discussed here previously but I didn't see anything.

Our 14yo daughter was diagnosed with ovarian cancer this summer. Surgery removed a 12# tumor, arby complications that hospitalized her an additional 5 days. This kept her from starting her freshman year on schedule and has created a lot of havoc for her. She's now showing all the signs of depression; sleeping, tears, etc. This weekend has been the worst and we are taking her in for a psych referral (for the depression) in the morning.

You are far from alone.

Thanks. But no, it's not an actual picture of one of my "babies", but it is in honor of a couple that look very much like that. The weekend before the fire I caught a man red-handed throwing kittens out onto my place. There was a HUGE blowout, he agreed never to drive down my road again, and I kept the kittens! Pics of them wouldn't have looked too nice cause they were well underweight when I got them (practically starving). But maybe when they gain some weight, I'll post pics.

Migirl, I wish I had some advice for you. I will keep you and your daughter in my thoughts. Best wishes.
