Overwhelmed, Mom in rehabilitation center.
My mom has multiple sclerosis and has just broken her hip about a week ago. She decided not to do surgery since she could not walk (she only stands to transfer herself) and the risk of dislocating in the future are very high for her. She is in a rehabilitation center right now and she miserable and in a lot of pain. I feel so overwhelmed by wanted to help her but I have a family of my own to take care of. Four and two year olds with one on the way and a husband who is a drill sgt in the army who has very long hours. I feel so overwhelmed and worried what the future will bring. She is unable to move in with us. We live in two story military housing. her home is five minutes away from our house so it has worked in the past, but she will probably need help full time and I know I can't do it. Next step might be looking at assisted living home. All she has is Medicaid and Medicare. I am not even sure what exactly I am asking but I could use some advice on what to do. And I needed to vent to someone who understands, sounds like most people here will. I am trying not to feel guilty about this all because i can't change anything, but i still do.
