Ottakee Posted March 1, 2012 Share Posted March 1, 2012 Just thinking of this last night as dh's parents have been ill and in and out of the hospital a lot. FIL has end stage kidney failure and is on dialysis 3 times a week, is legally blind, has had multiple heart attacks, just had 1/2 lung removed due to lung cancer, etc. and on and on. MIL is a kidney transplant patient and recently had 2 intestinal infections that hospitalized her. Dh and I are running ragged as he is the only living child (his other sibling, a brother was murdered 18 years ago). His dad is an only child with no extended family and his mother's siblings aren't able to help. Just got to thinking though of what dh and I will do someday when we become older and need help. We have 3 special needs children, likely none will marry and have children. One might drive at some point but likely the other 2 will never drive......or even be able to live on their own. I told my friend last night that she could take care of me.........but she is 11 years older so we will see :-) Anyone else think of this?
