When we had to take an emergency trip to Florida for my dad, Nana and Auntie had the boys... and they were just fine!

Emma- that is so sad. Is your son ok? What a horrible thing for him....
He's great he's 21 now and bounced back great. He still talks about his dad a lot, but never about the day it happen. It was really bad. I can fill you ladies in sometime on myspace.

Wow I am glad I didn't have to go thru that, my ex husband passed away 6 years ago, to be honest it was a horrible thing for all of us to go threw. He died of a heartattack at the age of 34 and my son who was 15 at the time found him. I filed for social security for my kids and started getting payments the next month. Went very smoothley. I hope things are taken care of for you now and things will get better.

((Hugs))
Oh EmmaRae, I didn't know that. I'm so sorry. I hope your son is okay. My grandson, who was 6 at the time found his dad. How terrible.

Losing a dad is so hard, especailly for a son to lose his father at a young age. We lost my father in law 2 years ago- my husband was 28 and to this day he has such a hard time with it. He too never talks about that day (his father had been battling cancer- it had gotten really bad and we went up to Greenville to visit him- left work early to do so- got there right after he passed awayin his bed- mother in law came running out of the house as we pulled in the driveway and just collapsed in my husbands arms. It was horrible.) I am so happy to hear your son is doing ok with it. It really is a hard thing to deal with..

So glad to hear that your son is doing well Mamma Duck! You guys take it easy and slow for the next few days, and don't worry bout us, we are here worring bout you!

Neecer, glad you finally got your beneifits! Thats wonderful!

Emmarae, I'm sorry to hear about your husband, my hubbys dad died 3 years ago,(in dec.) on my son's 2nd birthday, and my sister-n-law (the youngest of the three) found him on the floor of the living room. She is still not herself, she blames herself because she was upstairs in her bedroom when it happened. Glad to see that your son is doing well! Prayers to your family!

I'm not sure of any that have only local routes. Mrs. Dispatch worked for a company called Michigan Cartage for a while, she wasn't home every night, but was every weekend. The longest run she had was to Youngstown, OH.
thanks for the reply. my dad is going to be looking for work soon. his company is going to private contracts and it's going to be putting a lot of the payroll guys out of work. I was just hoping to hear something he could jump on before the rush. he likes to be home every night, my step mom has some health issues. Thanks again

Kelly, you are going to find that most of your companies want OTR (Over The Road) drivers. Most will get you home on the weekends, but that's about it.
And being from a trucking family ( grandfather was a trucker, dad was a trucker, and married to one who ONLY works in MI because of his license), OTR is actually where the money is made. The problem is you have to decide. Do you want more money or do you want to be home?
Thanks for the info. unfortunately my dad doesn't want to be gone overnight so OTR is out of the question for him. my step mom has some health issues and he doesn't like to leave her to long.

Just me again!! We are still here! Johnny is playing in the game room so we have time to get on here and drop a line.
So far,we don't know about going home yet. The Dr. will be in later this evening to let us know. He is up in a wheelchair and tryed...not very well but tryed none the less to use crutches. That is what might keep us here..but we are thinking at home therepy. Thanksfor all the words of support on here, it is nice knowing that people are prayingfor all of us.
If we make it home tonight(praying hard) then sometime after I have gotten some sleep, I will down load some pictures on my myspace.
Hey, BC..glad to see you are here!!
I will have to read up on everything else going on here at a later date..someone want to paraphrase it for me..ha-ha!!
P&C, i didn't know your husband died..I guess there is alot I don't know..
well, take care all and stay home where it is warm!!
