I had rotator cuff repair surgery on my right shoulder on the 6th of September. How does that affect my take on genealogy? I have been practically good for nothing for the past 2 weeks! I really do appreciate the help I have received from my friends, my church family and the social workers from Ashland Community Hospital Home Health Care. It has really given me pause to reflect on how helpful I have been, or Not, with my own family members who have had health needs. I can see where I have not understood what they were going through, what they were up against. I hope that this affects how I will respond in the future <3

I am in pain as I am typing with 2 hands here. It is about time for me to take another pain pill, and I will take the anti-nausea med, too. :-(

How did our ancestors get along when they were laid up? Did family rally around?
My father's mother, Nana, told of how when someone in the extended family got sick, they would send for her mother, Nettie, to come nurse them back to health. Then when they were back on their feet, Nana's mother had to go stay with someone else, a daughter, or someone else who was in need. I think we all have someone in our families who have a natural bent to care-giving. Thank Goodness for that! What happens when the care giver needs care?

In our modern society we have reliance on the health care system, not so much on the family or extended family.

That's all I can manage now. But I have been thinking about how separated we are these days - our hearts are separated from each other.
