No Help From Mother-in-Law Caring for Grandmother
I care for my husbands 98 yr old grandmother w/Alz. And we get no help from my MIL. Grandma is up at night just about every hour all night long! I also care for a 2 and 4 year old (not mine) Plus I have two kids still at home of my own, one is still in HS. On wednesdays my MIL would take grams to the club but since she came here she has a 92 yr old come pick her up, and on club day she would set up grams dr. apts so she didn't have to pick her up she would take her from the club to the drs. and then drop her off back here. But getting her up in the morning was getting harder and harder. Harder and her and myself! I would have to get her up at 6:30am and i would be like fighting with her to get out of bed! She would say shes sick and so on. Then once you got her out you would have to stay right on her because she would fall asleep while eating breakfast, washing, and dressing! All this to have her out the door by 8am. Now the kids are back to being dropped off at 5:30am so I;m up getting them and putting them back to bed ans hope that when grandma gets up she don't wake them, (she bangs into everything and is loud! she thinks she quiet!) And then the kids are up by 8-8:30 if grandma didn't wake then earlier! So I told my MIL that its too hard on me to be getting up and down every hour at night, to wake up @ 5:30 for the kids and then to go through all that with grandma. I told her she could make her Dr's. apts another day, its just to hard to function the rest of the day! And now I find out she told my husband to tell me that grandma has a Dr's apt wed, and the lady will pick her up for the club since she has an appt.!!!!! What a bitch!! She has no clue how dam tired I get taking care of her mother and her grandkids (2 and 4 yr old thats not mine!) I've been waiting for so long for karma to come back and kick them in the ass, that if I don't see that soon I'll kick their ass's myself!!!
