Isn’t Life Something?

Hey Guys.
This is funny to me. May not be to others though.
So, my peeps, I would like to thank each and every one of you for being a part of my fishy family. I can’t tell you how often I’ve opened fishlore because I had absolutely no one to talk to. My only social media. People I understand. Mostly. People who understand me. Our desire to help those in trouble bind us into one formidable team. It’s been an experience I’ll always treasure.
I’m sure I’ve made mistakes along the way. How could I not? My foggy brain makes thinking a trial sometimes. I asked one fella about his knifefish (was hatchetfish) because I had a knife in my hand. Yep, slipped a cog on that one.
And I know some of y’all get tired of my posts mentioning aquarium salt. I do know it’s not a cure all but it’s helped me and mine quite a bit. Sorry, but I’ll always reach for natural first. Unless it’s too far gone, then I’ll start with the nasty meds. Advice? Yeah. Most everybody is nice and respectful to the OP and each other. But a few are rather harsh and tend to rush to judgement without any thought to curtesy. Just my opinion, but it’s just not helpful. Especially to try to start an argument on someone’s call for help thread. Just sayin. Yes, my grammar could be better but I’m tired.
Which brings me to the point. Finally huh? I will be going in hospital for a bit. Hubby will bring my iPad when permitted. Seems Lupus decided my left lung is quite unnecessary. I’ll check in when I can. Promise. If y’all never hear from me again, I treasure each and every one of you. Even those naysayers out there. Be good to each other. Hugs to all.
Gypsy the salt lady. :smug:

Good luck. Its amazing how resilient a body is to things. And if its any consolation my dad had his right lung removed a few years ago and except running out of breath hes doing remarkably well.

I don’t want to invade Gypsy’s privacy but I’m sure she won’t mind me letting you guys know that she made it through the procedure. Drifting in and out but we still have her. Praise the Lord! That’s all the information I feel I can provide without her permission. Please continue to join me in prayer for our friend.

Thank you! Been worried about her ever since I read her original post.

Here's hoping she makes it back here soon. I have a cousin who suffers from Lupus so I'm somewhat aware of how debilitating it can be.

She had asked me to post to you guys and let you know how she is. You guys are part of her family. She knows you guys are asking about her and praying for her. I think it means a great deal to her. Who had the fish named Jupe? She is talking about that and the nurses asked me who he was! Lol

I really appreciate the sense of "community" on here!
I agree. The people on this forum are amazing!

** I'm so sorry I just now saw this thread. (crying) Glad Gypsy is ok. Lupus has such a crazy mind of it's own right. People rarely understand what all it can do. One day fine, the next day some really crazy insane stuff is going on. Assuming Gypsy will be back or someone can pass along *big hugs* and get plenty of rest!

You both contribute significantly to this network that enriches all our lives!
