no worries Bron - thinking of you - and on your birthday no less. What a way to spend it (sigh). I've been meaning to tell you that lots of people are having the sleeves of Ariann turn out too tight (me included) so you may want to modify the pattern in advance. Great big hugs, xx

I was going to email you about Doug's dad but was going to wait until after your birthday weekend.

I think you just have to do what is going to work with you and Doug. I don't look forward to making those type of decisions for my parents. Hopefully that will be a long, long time down the road.

It would be interesting if he was in a home with a friend. That way you can checkup on her when you guys are there and her family can check up on Doug's dad when they are there.


A horrible situation. Will we be as stubborn when we're at that point in our lives ? I hope not ! Stull, going into a home is no small thing, and pride can outweigh sense any day !

By the way...

*H*A*P*P*Y* *B*I*R*T*H*D*A*Y* !



Oh Bron, there are moments in life that are so tough! It's heartbreaking to put a beloved one in a home when he/she doesn't want to, but when the situation becomes impossible... It must be very hard to grow old and ill and *not* realizing that you are no longer the strong, independent person you used to be. But I think it's even harder for the children, who see the situation clearly.


*hugs* Bron! I hope that things sort themselves out for the best with the least heartache caused on all sides!


I'm so sorry, Bron. I'm assuming Doug is an only child so the burden falls on you and him. I understand what a stressful time it is for all of you. I hope everything works out. My dad should have been in a nursing home when he was diagnoised with congestive heart failure, but he refused to go. I think he thought he was still going to be able to climb on that tractor again one day.


Many comforting noises and a big warm hug.

Take a deep, centering breath once in a while and remember to tell yourself, it's only life :)


I'm sorry for all you're going through right now. Definitely don't feel like you have to apologize to us for not wanting to blog. Just take care of you and what you need to do.
