Thanks for the answers. I too even become paranoid at times about
myself. I have migraines and it makes me worry. I watch my kids
always. And Geoff insists on doing things normal kids do,(with a
helmet when warranted,) so that makes me nervous, but as he told
me, " If i made through all of that surgery just to be miserable, it
wouldn't have been worth it to me." He has a point, so I grin and
bear it, and pray alot. :)
