Only Child of Three
(Hobe Sound, FL, USA)
Parents have lived with husband and myself for 20+ years due to relocating and mom and dad loving our new "home". My husband has been the sole supporter of mom and dad, now mom as dad passed 12 years ago.
Two brothers have been asked to help out, and it falls on deaf ears. Two months ago mom suffered massive stroke. Has made progress and is getting stronger every day. Will be coming home shortly. But I cannot continue to take care of her alone.
Have been spending 12 hours a day at rehab with her, and my husband has taken turns with me being there. We are not financially able to pay for help, but my brothers are, yet they have only spent a combined 7 days here to help out, and don't want to discuss anything until after the holidays!
Like mom's stroke should have waited until after Christmas so as to not inconvenience them. If they don't man up and pay for in-home help, I do not know how I am going to do this. I have my own health issues, and cannot continue on the course I am on.
