I hope you will understand my reason for asking this question. My MIL's bed has been in my living room for 2 years -She is totally bedfast - dementia. Long slow decline. Lately, she's begun talking a bit again - like she was 6 months ago. I wonder how it will be if she improves? I am being brutally honest by asking this question. I think it scares me...........that this "hamster wheel" will never stop turning. Does anyone else secretly have this fear?
