Thank you all again. It's kind of overwhelming still, but in a good way this time.
*UPDATE* Funny, but once I got it to show up in the post, it started showing up in the sidebar and at the bottom of the page. I'll still be taking some time off from blogging to concentrate on getting these legal matters settled, but my stress is greatly lowered already thanks to some pretty wonderful friends.
*UPDATEx2* I just had to add this update as well. And I took out the Amazon button from the post since it's working on the page now.
It looks like anyone who donates has up to 30 days (Note: That was according to the confirmation email that people can send. Some research reveals that it's 7 days from Amazon and up to 30 days to contest it with a credit-card company which, since it's on the "honor system", would be automatic. However, anyone who changes their mind can contact me and we'll work out how to return a charge with as little hassle as possible.) to change their mind, no questions asked (by Amazon or me). This is great because I would rather someone cancel than regret a donation. If anyone selects the option to reveal their information, it sends me an email with payor information. I'm not going to mention individuals here, but I will be sending emails with additional thanks after giving a blanket thank-you now. Also, the minimum is $1.00 and the maximum is set by Amazon at $50.00 per transaction and can't be raised (I was asked that... really. Can you believe the generosity of some people? Incredible.). The more I learn about the Amazon system, the more I like it.
The donations are very much appreciated as the extra attorney fees, filing fees, travel costs, and a HUGE tax hit from having to amend the tax returns for the past couple of years because of this, have really driven us into our reserves much earlier than anything we could have otherwise expected. We hope to be able to re-amend (is that a word?) the income taxes once all the paperwork is filed and complete, maybe recovering some of that extra tax money we ended up paying (that we shouldn't have had to pay in the first place because we did everything they told us we were supposed to do and how can... :breathe: ok, I'm better now. ).
Anyway, thanks to everyone again for their support, prayers, and donations. All three are appreciated in whatever amount offered. Bless you all.
And you know...that's what matters.

Didn't send a notification email for obvious reasons.
I hope things get settled in your favor real fast, at least as fast as the wheels of justice can spin.

Good luck pal. Ain't much, hope it helps.
Also I am going to kick your ass next year on the NFL pool.

I totally understand how you feel about saying thank you, the morons helped me immensly last year when our dog needed chemo, and we couldn't afford it, and I just couldn't find any more ways to say thank you, or really put into words how meaningful the support from (relative) strangers was.
It's nice to know people care, and especially in desperate times, that can be a lifeline.
I'm not able to donate at this time, (lost my business in Febuary) but I'll keep your post bumped, and I'll be happy to do anything else I can.

I'll just wave my little bent wand and keep this here thread warm for you. Hope the details are all falling into place...
