I hope Powerpuff's message does not fall on deaf ears. My mother had been a smoker/diabetic for 20 years when she caught pneumonia and quit smoking cold turkey. For 20 later years she had been doing great, but not taking care of her diet and sugar took a toll on her body with reultand kindey failure, dialysis, both above the knee leg amputation and quadruple bypass. A week befor she died her entire right arm up to her shoulder was amputated. It was very sad to see her suffer in this way. Even sadder is that my children never got to know her grandmother who died so young.
