*T&Ps Needed*

I never do this but I could use all the T&Ps I can get at this point.  My mom just called and she is driving from Miinnesota to Michigan tomorrow.  My grandpa's health has been deteriorating over the last few months and it's gotten to the point where he will have to go into a nursing home.  The final straw was that he fell today and hit the mantel in their living room.  He's all black and blue but thankfully no broken bones.

There is just so much that is up in the air at the moment and I feel so helpless.  And I feel just awful for my mom.  I just hope he and my grandma can stay together because it would break their hearts to be separated.  They've been married for 60+ years and although they bicker like there's no tomorrow, you can tell they love each other so much.

I'm just so worried about them so any extra T&Ps you can throw their way, I would greatly appreciate it :)

  • T&Ps coming you and your family's way!  Admitting a family member into a nursing home is an extremely hard decision, but many will let your grandma and grandpa be together.  Keep us updated!
  • Oh, E . I am so sorry .I have never experienced this first hand, but I saw it when I worked as a nurse in a long term care facility. I wish that your grandpa recovers from his fall quickly and I am sure they have been through so much in 60+ years; they can get through this . I am praying for your ease of mind too!1

  • Thank you everyone :)  I completely fell apart last night and poor DH was left to pick up the pieces.  I'm doing better today but we'll see what this next week brings.

    You girls are the best!

  • Many T&P's for your grandpa! I think sometimes it's harder seeing your parents deal with the declining health of their parents, so try and stay strong for your mom :(
