First...I would like to express my sincere thanks and gratitiude to all the well wishes and concern and generosity. I live a fairly low key life and the outpouring was overwhelming from this community. Again, my sincere thanks.

As explanation...the immediate need for money was due to some health problems...my daughters. I was called by the local hospital yesterday saying they wanted to admit my daughter for a problem but she has not worked at her job long enough to have benefits and I basically signed my life away as responsible for her bills and we expected at least a two week stay. They wanted some money pretty much immediately for tests and stuff which I was able to cover (boy, some medical stuff is not even close to cheap. Unfortunately a few hours ago, that reason is no longer. She was pregnant and lost the baby this afternoon (the unfortunate part). She is crushed. I am crushed for her. I will be going back to the hospital as soon as I feed the dogs and change clothes. And I have to eat somewhere along the way.

Unfortunately this is not the only problem. The rest I would rather keep under hat until resolved (now mostly legal). But it is not pretty and will be a very hard mess to clean up.

Again, I thank you all for the thoughts, but if you feel so inclined, send your prayers my daughters way as she is the one who really needs it now. I just hope she pulls through this emotionally as well as the doctors say she will physically.

This is truly a unique community.

So sorry, Chris, for your daughter and you. It's hard to see your child in pain either physically or mentally. She will recover physically and she will move on mentally with your support. Give her lots of hugs and lots of time to talk.

Thinking of you and your family

Having been through a similar loss recently my heart goes out to you and your family. There is no easy way to heal or make things better, just know that the love you give to your daughter will be felt and will help her get through this.
