I know there are many of us with worst predicaments but right now I am incredibly down about surgery in a few days for osteomylitis in my jaw. It isn't known how much will need to be done until the surgeon opens up the area having to go into my jaw through my neck. This has been a very difficult year for my husband and I medically. He has prostrate cancer and will have it removed in January as it is spread throughout the prostrate. He also got a bone infection in his leg and was hospitalized for several days this summer and has been left with a venous insufficiency. There have been other related issues. I have bad shoulder injuries from getting our house ready for sale. It is very hard to see any light through this tunnel. Thought I would start this thread for those who deal with an aging parent who almost seems more healthy than we are presently which make us worried about our state of health also knowing a parent is aging and how everything will play out. If anyone wants to share their predicaments I am sure it could help us to have this outlet.
