Thank you so much, Mary. I'm deeply sorry for what I did. The day after I talked to you I bottomed-out and it was compounded by a stressful/disappointing situation concerning my parents and care/safety for Dad and the stress on Mom. We talked with Mom about the concerns for them both and ideas we had and asked if she'd be willing to do them (e.g. enlarging the shower for Dad because it's too small/narrow and he's not being properly cleaned). We have concerns about him using the steps and because of his foot - long story short we had reasonable ideas how to handle that. She agreed and was willing to go along with it, but a few days later she backpedaled. It's their house and we respect that - just wish she would have turned it down when it was proposed instead of getting our hopes up like that. Didn't react to it well and with bottoming-out I went in shut down mode. I'll private message you some more, too. I hope and pray you are doing well. Would love to see you soon. Hugs/Always, Eric
