my dad just got out of the hospital...his sugar ct. keeps going up/down..from 134-663...normal around 100...my mom isn't in good health either...the visiting nurse doesn't think my mom can take care of him anymore....there isn't enough good body parts from my whole family to even make one healthy person...my dad memory is about 1 minute..he is so confused.....but how can we let him go to a nursing home...the closest one is about 45 minutes away...we won't be able to see him as much.....how can we, as a family, let this happen...he needs 24/7 care...i was thinking maybe we could have some kind of schedule so he can at least be home for a couple more months.....does anyone have ant ideas? we are having a nurse come 2 x's a week...but that isn't enough....just to throw a little drama in this mix. there are 7 other siblings who haven't been around in about 5 yrs....as soon as we make the decision to put him in a home these same siblings will all of a sudden become the most loving, caring and best children a dad could ever have....i am sorry about my needing help again..soon my life will get back on track..
