Last year was the worse year of my life. The first half of the year, my FIL (age 93) was in and out of the hospital, in home hospice, and passed. We discovered MIL (90) could not live on her own, provided care in her home, had her living with us, and ended up placing her in Assisted Living. Just after we relocated her, my dad was unresponsive on a ventilator for 40 days after what was supposed to be an overnight procedure. We've had a great year so far. MIL has been fine and my Dad is pretty much back to normal. I just returned from the ER, second week in a row with MIL. I feel like we are starting the process all over again. I'm just not ready.
