Thanks again to those who've responded to my other posts. My care recipient and I are taking it a day at a time but at least not dealing with the hospital (ugh) any longer. During my stranger (and possibly more fun) moments, I've been pondering the word "caregivers" and recombining the letters to make other words. My favorite permutation so far is "Grace vs Ire". This summed up a lot of the situation for me, as least as far as what choices I have.
