My husband has had many strokes. He also is a diabetic. About 6 weeks ago he had breast surgery. After 2 surgeries because of being diabetic his chest has healed. He doesn't need 24/7 care right now. But he also can't be left alone for long periods. His memory, speech,circulation and has weakness in his legs. I know he is tried of being like this but what can I do. I also have a daughter who has been in bed/home with health issues for 4 yrs. now. I have had a bad flair from UC since Jan. of this yr. I am about %60 better. I have gone back to work full time plus. I also do most of the things that need done. The errands, housecleaning, taking someone to appts and the other stuff that needs done. I have tried to be calm, over-look him, try to make light of things and talk to him. But sometimes he yells/screams and I just had it. So I get upset and blow-up. This does no good for no one. The stress only makes me worse. Of course, stress doesn't help anyone else either. I am at a loss as what to do. Does anyone have any suggestions? He can do his own hygiene. On good days maybe 1-2 a week. He will maybe go to the store with me or he likes to bake. He might so a couple of other things around the house. The rest of the week he either sleeps or watches tv. I need help.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
