Oddly enough, it was mostly my idea. She was not receiving much care from her daughters in Florida, so hubby and I were relieved when she wanted to come stay with us. We had her the month of June. She came back Oct. 1 and she had lost about 15 lbs and could barely walk. She was fine when we sent her back in June! Ugh! I don't mind caring for her, but just a single ounce of gratitude or appreciation would be nice. She hates her daughter, (my husbands mother), the other daughter is useless. She raised my husband, and I have no idea how he came out unscathed!!? Any input, suggestions or insight is greatly appreciated!
