I had to share a little good thing! I am the sole caregiver for my husband for 5 years now--the last 3 in a PWC. I have not had a night or day off in all that time for many reasons which I am sure most of you can imagine.
My birthday is in November and a good friend of mine is also celebrating that month. She talked me into trying to plan a long weekend away--so I called my sil asked if she would be willing to stay with hubby for a week. she was more than happy to!
I finally worked up the courage to tell hubby my plans and surprisingly he was ok with the whole thing. I thought for sure he would be negative about it and not want anyone to care for him. luckily his sister is the only one that it doesn't bother him with his personal hygene and care. She probably doesn't really know what she is getting into, but she is willing to try--bless her heart!
I am very excited--going to the beach for 4 days, shopping, drinking, laying by the pool, reading books, sleeping all night and NOT being a caregiver.
