My brother-in-law who has been in very poor health for many years had to be admitted to the hospital last Thursday. My sister has been caring for him at home, but is no longer able to do so. So we are now looking for a placement for him in a nursing home. This has been very difficult for all of us. They have been married for 36 years and no one wants to send a loved one to a nursing home.
To make matters worse, my sister and I have to move by the end of this month. My sister has never lived by herself and she doesn't drive. So we are looking for an apartment where I can stay with her at first until she is settled and then I will look for a place of my own not too far away.
I am continuing my morning walks. It is a time of serenity for me where I can center myself for the day ahead.
Thank you all so much for your sweet words. Sorry I haven't been able to do much visiting, but I am thinking of you as I pack, apartment hunt, nursing home hunt, work my Etsy and Ebay businesses, and try to be a supportive sister.
