I have lurked here for a while and since I am having a rough day I thought I would say hello.
This last November by uncle who is 67 moved in with DH and I. He is recovering from throat cancer and has had several TA strokes in the last month. When he moved in with us he weighed barely 120 lbs. He's now up to 165 and looks great.
I get no help from my family or his kids. The only time he hears from his daughter is when she needs money and I'm not sure his other daughter even knows he's living with us. I am 33 years old and I never thought we would be doing this. We don't have kids and I am just so used to having the house to just us and now it's the three of us.
This has been harder than could ever even imagine.
