Hello, tsranga,


I want you to know that I saw your post earlier this week, yet I have not been able to devote the time and effort to responding to your questions as thoughtfully as I would like and in a way you deserve. Please forgive me.


My elderly mother-in-law is gravely ill, and I have spent just about every waking moment over the last 2 weeks helping my husband attend to her needs. She will be placed in hospice today, so please know that by no means have I carelessly ignored you. Your concerns have been on my mind since I saw your post, and I only regret that I didn't drop a quick note like this earlier in the week. So please, again, forgive me.


I will definitely get back to you and answer your questions as best as I can. In the meanwhile, please know that I do care very much about you; so hang in there!!!



Thank you so much for responding. Please take your time - I completely understand.
