Falling apart

My 84 year old mother with alzheimers has been in hospice for 10 days. She stopped eating and went into a comma 14 days ago. As hard as it is to watch someone die it feels harder as she lingers. My husband fell off a ladder and got 2 brome bones and 14 stitches. He has surgery yesterday but now has pneumonia. I am falling apart

Re: Falling apart

Hi JanKWV...Even though it's been four months since your post I hope you are doing well...I know where you are...Years ago I took care of my Mother...Sometimes it was like I didn't have a life...I hope your husband recovered from his surgery and is over his pneumonia...

Years ago I went through a rough time like you are having...Funny as it seems now I wish I had them back...They were busy years, but they were productive and I cherish them...Each one gave me a new knowledge on life and a new understanding of what laid ahead of me....My best advice is to take care of yourself...Get some quiet time...Take time for you and your husband to smell the roses....and may I add, stay safe...

I send you my best wishes...ILD....
