    So sorry to hear. It is so hard to be a caregiver without all the commotion of the squabbling. I am praying for your whole family.

    I wish you could get away for a bit. You need it desperately. Or is there someone who could host your husband for a few days to get him out of the house? That might give you a break of sorts, too.

    Know that you are loved and cherished by your Spark friends.

    Dee, I am sorry that you are going through so much. I got my Mom a bed-assist handrail which helps her to balance at night. Can you just take a day from everyone and have one of your siblings take care of your Dad? Just a couple of hours would help. I feel the same way that you do, it is just becoming so much and I never feel rested.

    You know my prayers are with both you and your Dad (with a few extras thrown in, that hubby will have patience with your Dad!)

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Just remember to take care of yourself, too - after all, who will keep your ducks in a row if you're not around to guide them!
