Yeah tell me about it. I wish this were just about choosing a lens this time. Just got some bad news the past week from two friends (one family leukemia and the other family a stroke). Doing everything I can to help out, just wish I could do more. It just never feels like it's enough.
Thanks all. I haven't gotten a lot of news like this in my life, I've been pretty lucky. I had to talk to the spouse that didn't have the stroke today, they have only left the hospital once in a week. I had to explain to them that they need to take care of themselves too or they aren't going to last long. Stress destroys you physically, I learned that during divorce. I explained to them they need to get home at night, get a good rest, and spend time with the kids (with family friend right now). They were very receptive to everything I had to say, which is really good. The outlook is a year for therapy/recovery.
