The most important thing I have learned? I have learned that no matter how well motivated I may be and how much I sacrifice, the final decisions are not the caregiver's to make. I can not actually lengthen my husbands life unless he is motivated to make sacrifices of his own.
I can assure him of my love and that his life is valuable to me. I can provide information, the right foods, light exercise equipment. I can even eat the same foods and exercise with him. In the long run, however, if he chooses to not make this extra effort, I cannot make him do so. I can just assure him of my love and that his life is valuable to me.
OF COURSE, WHEN WE FACE EACH NEW CRISES, EVERY BIT OF THIS GOES OUT OF MY HEAD. Ah Well, that's life.

The lesson I have learned is patience. After watching my mother go through life in a wheelchair, you understand that the usual daily stuff you do without thinking, takes longer from a wheelchair.

I've also always had an appreciation of walking.I really get angry with people who gripe that they have to walk an extra 15 feet to the store. It's amazing what we take for granted.

The most important thing I have learned is how valuable life is. For me, it showed me how much I truley love my mother. There is not another person who can replace a mother. It tought me to be greatful for all the time we have and had together. Now it has shown me how much I miss her.
The most important lesson I'vee learned is that my hubby is a grown man and I can't make his choices for him. If h so chooses to eat something that we both know is going to end up causing him breathing problems it's his decision. It's not my fault. Wheen he gets frustratd and says things yo mee that really hurt I hav to tak what is said and look at where it's coming from not who.
I can and always leet him know how much I love him and assure him that eveen though I may not agree with some of his choises I will support him and always be there for him

Gloria.
