      Hey BoiseB......I really hope everything works out with your surgery. We are all on this Life Conveyor Belt and just don't know when we will get pulled off. It's the same for everybody. The Kindest way is to die in an instant from a Heart Attack.....no suffering. My Prayers before I go to sleep is God take me in my sleep or give me tomorrow...Probably asking the impossible but that's what I've been thinking.

      BoiseB, I'll be praying for you also---marking the date on my calendar, too. Be sure and update us on how you're feeling. You shouldn't feel guilty about taking a sleeping pill! In fact, a sleeping pill should act immediately, so she may have given you something else, like an antidepressant.

      If you don't sleep tonight, I would call and ask for a sleeping pill to use until the other medicine takes effect. If its an antidepressant, it could be (?) 3 weeks---the pharmacist should be able to tell you.

      It will only be three days for the sleeping pill to take effect. That is because I need to start out with a 1/2 of pill to see if I have any bad side effects. and what the heck 3 1/2 hours sleep is better than 0. Thank you all for your prayers.
