So I will probably not be on or around much for awhile. As some of you know the last 6 months has been a trying time for me. I was in the ICU for pneumonia then my mom was diagnosed with lung cancer. She had a lung removed that took three surgeries and now it looks like we didn't catch it in time. Her doctors have given her about 6 months left. I will be devoting my spare time to her and her care. I may find it necessary at some point to have some of my little fishy friends fostered so that I don't lose them all. I hope I can find the help from my friends on here if need be. I will still check in once in awhile as I am used to seeing several of you in person from time to time and I don't see that happening for awhile.

Thank you, please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers.

Rachelle

My thoughts are with you Rachelle. I have a 29 g freshwater that I could dedicate entirely to your fish. Just let me know how I can help.

PostSubject: So many thank yous   Tue Feb 28, 2012 2:17 am

I truly appreciate all the well wishes. We just spent another weekend in the hospital. Really don't know how things will go from here on out, thought we had lost her but now she seems to be bouncing back. I have no unrealistic hopes though. So I do have several "friends" that I am not taking good care of right now, that I probably should find temp homes for. All my shrimp are already taken care of, I plan on taking saltwater life to BadX so that leaves a few still.

3 bettas - 1 female and 2 male, fins not looking so hot. Could use some TLC.

5 platy currently in a fish bowl

Two blind cave tetra, 1 xray tetra, several cories maybe some kuhli loaches, 3 swordtails all in a 20

6 rainbows, 2 big cory looking fish, 1 upside down catfish, red tail shark, 1 approx 6 inch catfish, 1 maybe 8 inch bicher. Housed in a 30.

OK now for the pain in the ass fish I mean monster fish:

2 huge plecos in 15-18 inch range

1 Tinfoil barb

1 beautiful leopard marked fish

and an oscar (i think).

Looking for temporary housing but possible willing to sell or trade some. Just feel bad that I can't take good care of them right now and hate to see them suffer. When I was hospitalized I lost half my stock - was very sad, don't want to see these die as well. They don't have to all to one home, just let me know if you can foster any of them.


Thank You.

At 9:23 am Saturday morning March 3rd I lost my mother/best friend/ parenting partner. I held her hand as she took her last breath. I am not taking it very well at all, never imagined I could hurt this bad...

Oh man i am soooo sorry. I am lucky to still have my mom, and we are very close. I cannot imagine your pain. It will get better, just use the strength she gave you. It is good you got to be with her. Cherish her memories and honor her life. I am a tattoo freak so i know i will have a large memorial tattoo for someone so special. Again sorry for your loss, we are thinking about you

Hi Fishfanatic, you have my deepest sympathy. I know how I felt when I lost one of my Brothers who was also my best friend. The pain never really goes away, but if you keep her in your heart which I know you will then she will allways be there to guide and comfort you. Be strong and take care of yourself I think thats what your Mother would want you to do. Remember she is up there watching you. Sorry for your lose. Marty-D.
