1. Wow, my dear Soph, what a great photo!

I love the colorful clothing, the dancing and the happy smiles on everyone.

What a wonderful Carnival it must have been!



How are you doing, dear girl?

2. I am ok

I put up some smiling pictures to cheer myself up. He is really unwell Peg. So fragile. But I am very sensible. I have had two days to come to terms with this and although I cannot imagine life without him, right now I need to focus on making him comfortable and cared for. I will grieve later. Or sometimes late UK time on DU after I have put him to bed.

4. I think you're coping as well as can be expected, my dear Soph.

Here's a link for the Bereavement Group: https://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1234

They've helped me when I had losses.

3. I had no idea that your Carnival pictures were from London!

I had assumed they were from a trip to a S American country. How wonderful that such a celebration comes to the UK. Of course, Mardi Gras looks a lot like that in New Orleans, LA so how narrow minded of me!
