Re: [MOL] mom's chemo



Oh PJ!  Isn't it just horrible how someone ill has to get stressed out and make demands when it should all just go smoothly?  I can't stand the way people are treated any more, and they make so much money doing it.  Glad your mother is getting the fight in her, that's a positive.  Love you, lillian -
