My hisband is very ill with emphesema .TIA's , kidney problems, diabetes, RSD, Stroke amd heart problems. He is 68 and I'm 50. His kids are my age. They seem to think when they come once in a blue moon to seethier dad that I havbe to prepare them a meal. My husband and I have discussed this and he agrees that I shouldn't have to take care of them UNTIL they arrive. These past several months he has been getting worse and in the hospital all most as much as he has been home. I have to work full time in order to keep our fantastic insurance and to pay teh bills. The kids seem to think I can do this alone. I have 3 kids of my own that help even though they have babies and 2 travel for their jobs and one is out of town. What can I do to get these grown kids to understand theri dad is very sick and they are losing out by b=not being there, I even asked them to come set with him in the evening so I can go out without worry. During the day while I work I either work from home or call hom every 1/2 hour plus go home at lunch to take care of his needs.
