My husband's brother and wife were taking care of her for 1 1/2 years. Now it is our turn. They are giving us 2,500 from here estate, but with her healthy diet, increased laundry (she had overnight diapers, but they leak) and increased utilities (she does not like to be too hot or too cold). I am wondering if 2,500 is underpayment. Since we have had her (6 months), I have carefully planned her diabetic meals (the Dr. is thrilled and has cut back one of her diabetic pills. We have also discovered a skin cancer and has had it removed. We are also taking care of her feet. I am also typing up her personal history. The other family did not even know that a diabetic person needed a diabetic diet. We were told about the financial arrangements the day we took her in...by note. (the other family is quite dominating and rude) I have been laid off, but feel I am closing in on a new job, my husband is wondering why I am looking for a job, but I am needing money, which he finally understands.
