Default Think of us!



Its been a while since ive been on, fish have been the last thing on my mind. Ive been barely done water changes because I havent been here..so far only my ammonia has been spiking in the betta tanks, tetra tank is doing awesome though.

My dad had a kidney transplant a month ago and developed a pretty serious infection, so serious they arent entirely sure the meds will fight it off...started off pretty rough but after sugery he seems to be getting a bit better. Its been a tough thanksgiving but we are glad we were able to spend it with him. Thanking my lucky stars everyday. Our family is extremely close and having either of my parents that scary sick is terrifying for us. Keep us in your thoughts! Seems the more people who are praying or thinking of us the better he seems to be getting.

Thanks everyone! I miss driving you all nuts with my 100's of posts daily! Hopefully I will return to you all soon with good news.

Oh no, that's terrible! Good luck! There must be some antibiotic that still works, and if not, then infections can still be fought. I sure hope that he turns out okay, and you too.
