Funny! And serves security guards right if they insist on checking your bags…

Funny now but I didn't think so at the time: … if you're the one in your son's wedding photo in your natty little outfit - and the practical carry-all over one shoulder.

You take better care of your loved one than you take care of yourself. (My mom eats better than I do). :)

You know your loved one's weight, INR number, medications and dosages.

You always have a transport chair in your trunk.

You are always exhausted, never caught up on house work, and hate at least 1 of your siblings.
