To make a long story short the last 10 years have been very difficult for her and myself. She is bedridden and no control of her bowels or bladder. It has become a 24/7 challenge.
Like Lee and Angie we could have packed our bags and left. We chose to stay with our loved ones, soul mates, to make sure they got the best care one could give. The three of us and others all know that our spouses would do the same for us if the tables were turned. No questions asked.
The bottom line is we cannot change what happened yesterday nor predict what tomorrow will bring.
We cherish each and every moment with our loved ones and the thought of quitting or walking away has never entered our thoughts. It is the cards that we were dealt and we are going to play this hand out.
Dennis very well put my hats off to you
I know some of you may know the condition I am in. Please No Sympathy for Me Either
. I'm on the other end 12 years ago I was in a motorcycle wreck broke my neck and I am a quadriplegic and my wife takes care of me and working a full-time job. I can move my arms and wrists but no fingers movement otherwise from my chest on down I am paralyzed with no feeling so as Dennis put it I have no bowel and bladder control thank god for plastic I pee & poo in bags
I know my wife must really love me to do what she has to go through.
