I've never spent any time on conversations and don't really know what the rules are here.
Bump down. I guess this forum isn't as active as I thought it would be.
No, it's not very active. I guess it used to be. If you head over to the Conversation side of Home Decor, you'll find lots of nice folks with lots of active threads.
I really wish we could get things hopping over here though!
Hi, I think this would be a nice place to share information about us - that is "nice to know", not the down and dirty "have to know" details that are needed on the kitchen forum.
Well, I know there are a lot of us who are in the over 50 category here and I was going to ask if anyone had an elderly relative who fractured a hip. My fil fell last week and had a fracture - the top of his femur. But drs thought it too risky to do surgery and sent him back to the nursing home. Surprisingly, he seems not to be in a lot of pain now. He just needs to be watched a lot more than before.
A couple of people have tried to have a general conversation side here but it never seems to catch on. I check in every once in a while but ....nothing. If you are looking for general conversation the Home Decoration site and their conversation side is very active.
marti8a - you might want to go over there because there has been a couple of threads lately about elderly parents breaking hips and so you might find some good information and definitely some great support. Try starting a thread there.
blfenton - I'm guessing this could all change very easily now with the new 'post email replies' box to check; it will be far easier to get a conversation going here I think.
marti8a - I suggest posting a heads-up about the question you might pose in a new thread here and maybe a url to it and I'm guessing you could jump-start something...
?what did you want to know? ;)
Thanks for the heads up aliris. I'll check in more often.
Sadly, Marti just posted on the Dec Forum that her FIL died yesterday. Go to Conversations over there for information.
