This Week's Carenote

I have been caregiver for my mother for several months and she is bedridden. She and I didn't have a close relationship as I was raised by my grandparents. I'm 72 yrs old and have numerous health issues myself and am trying to raise a six year old grandson too. I'm all but ready to give up. She wonít go to a nursing home because she has a dog that she worships. How can I tell that I can't do it anymore?
