MIL Hospitalized

MIL is back in the hospital. She has Alzheimer's and now has beginnings of Parkinson's Disease. She has had multiple strokes in her brain and is unable to feed herself. We are waiting on more tests results. She was already in an assisted living facility. Now, she needs a nursing home with skilled care. She's 75 years old.

So very sorry to hear about your MIL. I know how hard it is to have a loved one go through all those "sr" curses. Dad is 79 and the Dr. said he thought Dad might be starting the early stages of Alzheimer's but they aren't going to test him to see. He has had a number of strokes, and just had his leg amputated this past spring, and now is a diabetic, so they figured it was just better that he didn't know. It would just be another thing for him to worry about.

Your family is in my prayers

Sorry to hear about your MIL. My FIL has alzheimers and is in a home. It is really hard on my MIL and we don't really know what to do to help since we are about a 24 hr drive away. Not only that, the money they saved over a lifetime is now being eaten up with his care bill of something like $1700.(This is Canadian funds) a month plus her apartment rent and living expenses.
