Just a quickie. I am now out to my family. Thank you to everyone who gave me encouragement or suggestions. While my family has varying degrees of understand this situation, they all share a great amount of love for me. That is all I can ask!
I did here from all of the siblings, except for one, but we have talked about other things in the meantime, and I know he knows. Its just his way to handle the situation (not talk about it) which is totally cool with me. He will talk about it in his own time and own way, and I am not bothered one bit by it.
