Re: [MOL] Lori

"Life. Be in it.  A good motto for Lori.  I second Kathy's response to your story about your Dad, have you thought of making a movie?  I am in stitches, your writing is so creative, and your inner beauty to overlook his imperfections and love him as he was shines forth.  What a story!  Your friend, lillian

Hi Lillian and all,
I have made a few decisions for my life. I have been allowing my asthma to stop me from being a part of life too long my doctors have not been helpful at all. I joined Ballys fitness club and started working out with a personal trainer yesterday. My arm hurt from the new effort but I did not run in to to much trouble during the training the manager Elgin is taking me on as a personal challenge. His son has asthma. Thus far he has been very help full. I have been stuck in a cycle of taking medication for the asthma and then having side effects. i.e. Depression and weight gain. It has gotten so bad that I have not been able to work full-time. I miss being a part of life. I listen to all of your struggles Think of my Dad zest for life. I realize that I have been afraid to live for fear of dieting.
So I am going to live. by dad and family always babied me because of my asthma. yet when I was younger I did not know I had asthma and I was a runner, a water skier, a bicycle rider and a hiker. I think my dad would have loved to have changed his life so he could live better and longer. He might have stopped eating so much and played more. Like he did when we were children. He did make one change he stopped drinking for 18 years before he died. That was his one source of great pride. Dad was also very involved with his community as I am my neighborhood.
We are gathering the information for the attorneys for the malpractice case over dads death. It is very painful. we never had a chance to look at other options dad wanted the surgery done and to get bake to life. He witness one of his good friend wasting away from the chemo and cancer. There was perhaps no greater fear for my father ( a fat Man) then to loose that much weight. One of the Doctors was a friend of my fathers. I hope we won't have to sue him. Quakers don't sue to settle differences. The problem I have is that I need to know the doctors here my concerns and acknowledge thier mistakes so they will not do it again. But in the adversarial system the Doctors will not sit down with the family and admit they screw up. The is no reconciliation process short of the court. I do not want this to happen to anouther family Father or mother.
Cindy the neighbor who was stabbed, is doing all right. She is back is work. the police are idiots they are doing every thing to late. i.e. finger prints. picture identification ect. I pray they come up with something. But I will be suprized. We will pursue the police not doing thing right with internal affairs.
I pray for you all
Love Lori
