Mom & Dad

Mom & Dad


Hi y'all;

I have not had much time to be on our Commuinty the last week a lot of family stuff going on with my Mom & Dad.

This is a photo of my Mom & Dads 58th wedding anniversary. This was taken just a few weeks ago. As you know Dad was in the hospital last week and is not doing very well. The doctors put Mother in the hospital Friday, and now she is not doing very well. Now I'm not sure where or which way to go. Laura and I are taking turns at the hospital.

I ask all of my friends PLEASE keep us in your thoughts and prayers! All of the stress with Mom & Dad, my arms are covered with rashes, and now my left foot is starting to get a lupus rash/blister (I just assume it is from the stress). Also I have more joint pain.

If I am out of touch and or make short replys, I hope you as my friends understand. I will up date how things are going when I can. I feel as if I have reached the end of my rope sometimes.

Wishing everyone the BEST!

  • So sorry to hear this latest news.

    You and yours are certainly being tested to the limit.

    Will be thinking of you and your family and hoping things improve for you.

    Please make sure you and Laura take care of yourselves while being there for mom&dad who look a lovely couple.

    kInd,positive and caring thoughts your way.

    Stress sure will feed the lupus beast so stay calm and draw strength from your faith so you can keep going during this trying time.

    We will all be there for you in spirit and fully understand.

    Love and gentle hugs to you all

  • Hello Tiras,

    We all understand your time is precious Tiras and how important family is to us all. Your parents are lovely and it is so sad for you now Mon is poorly too. Your Dad being so ill has put a strain on Mon but you are there for them both because you are the man they made you today and they will be very proud of what you have achieved. Despite your disease you think of others as we all appreciate on this community, you still took the time to tell us of your worries.

    We are here when you want us, we support you and will remember you all in our prayers. I know if we could we would come to support you in person, just to hold your hand even for a minute so just imagine we are there sat with you doing just that.

    Take care dear Tiras.

    Love as always, Nicola. πŸ’ xxxx

  • Tiras,

    Your mom and dad look so sweet. What a treasure that photo is!

    Please take care of yourself and let your wife take care of you during this stressful time! It's hard to do when family is the most important thing of all, but stress wreaks havoc on those of us with lupus! It certainly sounds like you're experiencing that already. Try to remember that, if you don't take care of yourself and preserve your strength, you won't be able to be there for the people who need you so much right now!

    I prayed for you and your dear parents and your whole family in church this morning. I know that prayer is heard, and you know that, too. God will work this out according to his will and his timing.

    I'm thinking of you and your family.

And yet, you have found a moment for us...and shared this wonderful so're an inspiration
