Husband to Widows And Father To Orphans

The drama seems to be unending. Mom fell again today. She has not even been home 24 hours. She decided that it would be alright not to ask for help as she headed off to the bathroom where she got tired when putting on her makeup and fell. Thankfully she did not hurt herself. She tried to put the blame on her caregiver stating that she asked for help and none was forthcoming. (not true) She became very combative abusive and rude. Thankfully she did not have a tray to throw as I am sure she would of if she had one. The one positive thing? Her caregiver is a angel and can handle mom in a firm, calm yet compassionate way. When things were finally all sorted out and mom was settled this lady gave me a big hug as I left and told me not to worry or stress. She is very willing to work with mom even though she has these tantrums. She also stuck up for me with mom. She went through the same scenario with her own mom. She is also a widow and lost her husband to the very same cancer that I lost mine too. She understands! She understands every aspect of everything. She gets it! What a relief. She is an angel to me. I thank God for her. He knew that I needed her. So often when things seem to be impossible, God lines things up to make it all just a bit easier for me. I am humbled. He is awesome. I am convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that He cares for me. He is husband to the widows and father to orphans.

Oh, Chris. That is great news! God is good like that and knows exactly what we need. That is a real blessing that has come out of what would otherwise be a bleak situation.

I'm sorry about the tough time you've been having with your mom. But I'm really happy to hear that her caregiver sounds fantastic, and that she'll be a good companion for both your mom and you, too!

I am glad you have someone to help you with your mom. I feel so bad you are going through this now. Your mom sounds frustrated with herself and she probably gets mad and takes it out on loved ones and doesn't really mean to be mean. A very hard cycle for all of you.
