I have already posted once on this topic but I just need to tell you what is going on now. I am the caregiver, now, of a 90 year old lady. Concerning my sisters, I'll share the lastest news and stories of what happened "today" with Mrs. Bill. Do I get emotional support from them?..noooo! All they say is "she needs to be in a nursing home" "We can't understand why, after taking care of Dad, you would do this again, its too much for you". "She is not even kin to us". OKAY...no I don't have to do this but I want to and at least this time I am getting paid. The other night Mrs. Bill couldn't sleep so I got on the bed with her and we hmmmed and sang gospel songs together and she got relaxed and fell asleep. If by any chance my sisters ever read this...HEAR THIS...like with our Dad and the same with Mrs. Bill..she is a foot step away from the throne of God and if I can make the journey an easy and peaceful one..so be it. If ya'll can't understand this, I'm sorry. You really don't know what you are missing, to listening to an elderly person pray to God everynight and how its feels to hear her shakey voice sing "Amazing Grace".
Thanks for letting me vent this here..
