It Begins

 -

My mom is beginning to doubt her ability to live on her own, even after therapy. Where she is currently staying for therapy used to be the best nursing home in town, but it's a shadow of its former self. Decisions will have to be made.

We made the decision to bring mom-in-law into our home now that she ain't able to live alone.
Nursing homes suck

They do, Charlie, but we'd don't have the health to care for my mom.

You sure are in a tough spot. Being the caregiver is never easy. Please take good care of you. You must, for the sake of you all. There is no way you can do it all for everyone. I'm praying you'll get more help.

Gorges Smythe said...

Thanks, LB; you sound like someone who's been there.

I'm so sorry to "hear" that. It's certainly a difficult decision to make. Prayers that she finds what is best.

There may be some good news on that front, ladies. They've decide that part of her problem may be gout. If so, things are treatable, so she waiting a few days to make any decisions.

Praise God!

Gorges Smythe said...

Amen, Mh.

LizBeth said...

That really is good news! Treatable!!!

It's not a sure thing yet, LB, but we're hoping.
