This post will serve to bump this to the first page. If members wish to keep it active, just keep posting into it.
It was not lost or locked, it was just inactive.
I think it also deserves to be noted that just saying "bumping up" in the text is not what was intended from the ccmc
ADDING relevant content, in context, IS how topics should be bumped if they are inactive, like this one was.
From my own experience here ( since 2008 ) "empty" bumps tend to get deleted, which just drops the topic back to it's last posting date.
IF someone wants to "bump" a topic, then please contribute to it meaningfully.
This forum is open for registered members to post into any open topic.
No individual member decides which topic is appropriate for another member.
THIS topic was started by a wife of a Stage IV husband.
Over the years MANY members from many different situations have contributed and that is the way it should stay.
