If you were free
What would you do? I know a lot of you are caring for ill parents, and probably don't want to think of them being gone from your lifes. But unfortuneately that will happen, and then what?
We have discussed this at home, if our son were to be gone, I hate to say it, but I would be FREE to go where I want, when I want.
When you cannot leave someone, even with a caregiver overnight, for over 20 years, you have not had vacations, you don't go on trips, and you at times do wish you did not have to be doing this caregiving.
I am just curious, if I am the only one thinking, "when he is gone I can fly to my granddaughters anytime I want".
