Robert, I'm glad to hear that you and the others are recovering.
Prayers do make a difference.
I felt the same way as you after the passing of my brother a year ago in October. An example is some of the threads here on OSO that I used to get involved in and get mad at. Now, they just don't seem worth the time. Some, I may read with a little amusement, others I don't even bother to read.
Have a Merry Christmas
