I commented a couple months ago about MIL falling after we went on a 7 hour "outting" to help take care of our daughter. Nobody liked that.
Now we have a couple of events where Mrs. Pepper and I need to be out of the house at the same time for several hours. So it is time for companion care to come in at times like this. As you can guess, MIL does NOT want any part of this. Says she will be just fine.
Yea, um, no. Not really. The stakes are too high. Another fall like that could literally kill her. WTH, that last fall could have killed her.
So it is time for another mother-daughter conflict where we have to impose safety on her over her objections. I've been asking my wife to use language like "Did you enjoy being on the floor for 6 hours?" (heavy handed) or "Mom, do this for my peace of mind." (the gentle approach)
Mrs. Pepper has come around to this wording. Guess she sees that it is time for tough love.
We have the first event this weekend, and the second one next weekend. So by the end of the month we may have a riot on our hands.
Sigh, my dad was so much easier. But then he did not live with us, and he went rather fast.
I'll let you know how this unfolds. If anybody has suggestions on how to word things, please comment!
