Last year I didn't get to take my annual beach trip cause mom fell and was in rehab thereafter. That's my biggest concern about leaving a couple nights is she has history of falling. Every couple months or so. But I know you all know where I'm coming from with needing that break and fun time. Full time caregiver. Mom has lung disease, on oxygen full time, history of falls. Mother of teenage son, and current college student. My hands are full. I feel guilty for even wanting to take trip with my mom sick, however I need and want to be my best and not sure how when I have NO work/play balance. I offered to hire someone to stay with her, but she isn't having it. So could have someone check on her and get her the life alert system. Anyone been in this predicament?!? So difficult watching someone you love get sicker by the day. Mom is only 66. Thanks in advance for any tips or suggestions because I've been racking my brain trying to figure a way so everyone has their needs met. Including me. Thanks, and happy Friday!!
