Well here we go .....I gave up my business moved back to California to take care of my father when he got sick. I moved about 4 hours away from him as at the time he wasnt that bad. I went to work for another company here in Ca and started writing a book. Everything was going well till a year ago, when I went to see him and he was deathly ill . I called all the family ( you see I have a brother and 2 sisters ) as I didnt think he was going to live and niether did the Dr.s . The sisters who hadnt seen him in 5 plus years due to this lovely dysfunctional family and the fact my father was very abusive when were were younger. They both decided they could handle taking care of him and stepped in . That was fine I was at the point I needed a break anyways. HA well that only lasted for 2 weeks and they were begging me to take everything back over. Low and behold my father got better and sure enough upset the family again and they all are not talking to each other again. So then after this last year with the medication and the dementia that he has gotten things have turned worse again ......Last night I received a phone call from the 24 hour care giver service who takes care of him now and there was a situation with a lady there and she quit. I asked this person I know about what agency I needed to get a hold of to take care of this .....Well the person pointed me in the right direction and after all day on the phone taking care of this I sit here writing this and totally balling my eyes out as I am alone and have to make the decision on what to do with my father. Has anyone ever had to put thier parent in a facility of any sort? It is not an easy thing to do no matter how bad the child hood and how awful he is right now he still is my father. This is not easy and for anyone that has been through this I feel for you. I am done on this for the night as I cant cry anymore tonight.
On a more positive note my weight loss program is going well I should be down another couple lbs this weekend. I bought a Zumba work out video and this white girl has rhyem...I tell you !
