My mom died 6 months ago from massive brain bleed. Decision amongst myself, my husband, our 3 kids and my brother was that I move in with my Dad and take care of him. He has Parkinson's and we thought taking him out of his surroundings would mean his end would come too soon. I left my FT RN position dialysis and my 7 yr old and I stay with him24/7. My husband and son and dogs are down the street and oldest started college in Aug. Although it's what is right to do there are just some days!!!!!! I'm glad I found this app to have something positive for myself. My escape. I can't just up and leave anytime so I am thankful for SPARKPEOPLE. Especially today!!!

    I did that for 3 years with my Mom until she passed. Takes some dedication but it can be done. It is the hardest thing you will be proud of doing. I never once regretted the time with her. emoticon

    Its very difficult taking care of a parent full time. I did it with my mother in law & its very taxing some days. I symathize with you & im happy you have a place to let go when needed. God bless :)
