Taking Care of Our Parents

You never really know the number of pepole that can relate to your exact circumstance, until it\'s happening. We feel like we are the only one.\r\n\r\nOur mom was suffering from Alzheimer\'s. She survived cancer 3 times and it returned 32 years later in her blood, which ultimately took her away from us. My father passed on two years later to be with her.\r\n\r\nMy sister and I had a unique experience in caring for our mom. My sister was 28 with three kids and one on the way, when I was adopted at 4 days old by my mom who was then 45. My mother passed when she was 83. By this time, my sister was retired, kids grown, grandchildren, golf and boating. I was raising a family, working full-time and focused on making my family larger. We were in different very places! We have alot of different stories to tell and hopefully we can help a few along the way. We tried very hard to use humor to deal with our hurt and loss. \r\n\r\nSo, I hope to post some stories that my give you a smile through some tough times and maybe you can share some with us!
