Just Checking in

Hello everybody! Just wanted to pop in quick and see how everyone is doing? Deb, how are things going with your mom these days? I hope that everyone is doing ok and enjoying the holiday season.

Things have been very crazy for us lately with my FIL. He is now hiding his money and then accusing me or my MIL of stealing it. Of course when he finds it, he insists that we took it and then put it back. He has again threatened to hit my MIL with his cane, even while my husband was right downstairs with them. My husbands brothers and sisters are FINALLY seeing that he needs to be placed somewhere. My MIL cant stand him and is now very afraid of him. He needs to be taken care of. She says that he will wear the same depends for a week. He isnt always incontinent but sometimes while asleep. By the time he takes it off she says it smells so bad. Its just not fair to him anymore either. Today, he is wearing his socks over his shoes :/ He takes his cane and points it at the tv and pretends to be shooting the people on the tv. He says that nobody can take his money now because he has a pistol. Which he really doesnt but he thinks his cane is a gun. We were trying to get home care, but after the events of the past couple days, my MIL is insisting he gets out of the house.

Hope you all are well, and that your New Year brings happiness and good fortune!
