I get your newsletter daily and I have saved several of them for re-reading. They have helped me in many ways.

I am a caregiver for my spouse who has heart disease and many other complications. He has been in the hospital for five weeks and we are trying to get him healthy enough to return home. I sometimes feel overcome with grief for him and feelings of loss on my part. I think the loss comes from sitting vigil here twenty four seven. I do try to leave sometimes but have a lot of guilt when I do.

Thank you

I got my mom a membership at the YMCA and she loves it. I now take her there for her daily showers. It's safe, gets her out, and the sauna afterwards for drying off is priceless!
