its been a long time guys. 2008 turned out to be interesting. it started out exciting in a great way and by summer it all fell apart.

i started posting in this forum out of a pure facination for diamonds. ive met some really cool people here. lots have come and gone. and i guess i too have gone "MIA" for periods of time due to some extrordinary personal circumstances. last year was some of the same. mike had another electrical heart incident first part of july and was in the hospital for nearly a week, about three weeks after that my dad was hospitalized for failing health and it was discovered he had stage 4 terminal cancer, weeks folowing that horror, mike again was hospitalized in clevaland for a week for more heart related treatment. my family pulled together, we wethered the "crap sandwhich" of all this. dad died the week before christmas. mike is doing well so i am grateful for that and so glad to have all my bothers and sister and mom. i miss the peaceful times of life though, the simplistic things, the times when blathering about diamonds was my luxury. i wonder if i will ever know that again. with the state of this world i feel a little down, and those of you who "know" me probably realize that is bad news when teacups is down...

i am hoping to catch my breath one day here soon, recapture a time when i feel i can actually "relax" in mind and sprit.

I am so sorry to hear about your father teacups, my condolences to your whole family. It sounds like you've been getting pretty well bounced around for the last few years. Is Mike able to get out in his shop ? I'd like to think that he's able to keep doing his inventive stuff...way better than getting poked and prodded at the doc's. I hope that this year is a much better one for you and your family !

Really sorry to hear about your dad AOTC. That is really tough. It sounds like your family is close knit.....I'm sure that helps to comfort each other.

Glad to hear your hubby is out of the hospital & doing better though.

Here's hoping that 2009 goes better for you.

Amy

AOTC,

I remember those days of posting about diamonds day in and day out too. I also remember how many of us board members have had our fair share of losses and relied on this community for support over the years. We have even lost some of our 'very own' here and our friendships have grown deeper as a result. Although we may not post as often as we used to we still lurk. Please know we are here for you and if there is anything we can do please don't hesitate.

I too am mourning the recent loss of my Mother and extend my sincerest condolences on the loss of your Father. Know however, that he lives on through you.

Hi Teacups,
I am new and came to admire your rings but also want to add my condolences about your Dad and my best wishes to your husbands continued good health.

My eye was drawn to your rings in the wide bands, they are so pretty.

I hope to have a pink gold wide band in a brushed finish one day.

Sincerely,
Pattcake

well.. i just got an email today that pook posted to this thread. i see my last post was 2-9-09

on 2-15-09 mike a gran-mal seizure. was in our local hospital for two days. the neurologist thinks it was triggered from his cardiac meds but there is no way to know for sure. (he had seizures as a kid some 33 years ago due to complications from open heart surgury) soooo... he lost his drivers licence for 6 months, and the worst part of all this, he lost his job in a round about way. i guess in this economy mike has become too much a liability from the standpoint of insurance and the shop environment. he has a lot of health issues and now this. good news is no seizures since, but he is on meds for it.

so now we pay cobra health insurance premiums while they are available to us. it is costly. mike is loathome to take his social security disabilty early but he may be forced to (for the medicare health benefit) as he is unable to buy health insurance with his extensive issues. we have saved for many years but health expenses are astronomical.

he has worked all his life and achieved so much and invented things. he has nothing to be ashamed of. he could have been living off the public dime his whole life but always made his own way with gods help. he will be 50 this summer, i hope he will just take his social security that he worked for all these years and rest a little, work in his little metalworking shop and just be satisfied that he gave it his all and now he can enjoy doing what he wants to do, he has earned it. knowing my mike he will fight this all the way. this crappy economy and his complicated health issues aside. i do not know what the end of the story will be as far as details go. i do know we will travel that path together and no matter what, we will endure. stuff and things come and go. we will be marriend 25 years in septemeber. that is our finest achievement.

i hope all of you are well. i do hope the best for you all. i have been distracted that is for sure. i still mourn my dad. there is a lot of hurt and trouble out in the world for many folks not just myself and i try not to get drawn inward too much. i keep busy helping mom, taking care of mike, sticking close to family, working, you know, the normal stuff. i just have not had the urge to post a lot online. it was such a fun pastime though. maybe 2010 ? if you have a mind let me know how things are with you guys.

Geez, sorry to hear about everything you & Mike have been through lately. I guess when it rains, it pours! Hopefully there will be some sunny days soon!

Congrats on your upcoming Anniversary!!!
