No Kidding

I called my mother last week to apologize. I apologized for anything I ever did, might do, have been perceived to do or ever may do in the future to make her at all unhappy.  The reason for my sudden request for forgiveness has to do with a visit to a local emergency room I had the night before.

I was watching a late night comedy show and although the jokes were good, they weren’t quite good enough to bring on the side-splitting pain I was starting to experience.  After realizing it had nothing to do with the taco I recently devoured, I quickly took to the Internet...continued

Sharing Wisdom

A caregiver asked:
How do you tell your father that he is missing the toilet and urinating all over your wood floors. HELP!!! Any ideas to protect my floor?
Roberta in CA responded:
If your father is urinating on the floor, perhaps you could convince him to sit on the toilet to urinate. My husband sits now, because his balance and aim are bad.
She added:
This site makes me hopeful and tearful at the same time. What I don't get is the people who find caregiving rewarding. Are there rewarding moments? Absolutely. But overall, I deeply miss the loving, tender, appreciative man that my husband used to be. I haven't accepted his illness yet. I can share a short series of tips: fight for your loved one's healthcare, question doctors, search for options and, by all means, do not sit back and be quiet when something doesn't seem right.
