I am with him 24/7. He cannot be left alone. He cannot walk, talk, think, answer phone and he is incontinent of ruin wand has a colostomy bag. He is bedbound. He cannot answer the phone, start the TV, or even change channels. I bathe him, change him, cook for him and give him his meds and daily comforts. We have no family to help. I am all he has and feeling very locked in. I cannot leave him alone, not even to buy groceries, get the car serviced or go to a doctors appointment. I am as bound to the house as he is.
