After two years of putting my Mom as the priority in my life I've come to the realization that my priorities are my husband, daughter (away at college)career and then my Mom. My Mom with Alzheimer's can not be the same Mom who loved and raised me. My Mom was at first at her home, then when she couldn't take care of herself or the house I brought her to CO to live in Assisted Living after 11 months there she then spent 10 days in the hospital to control medical issues and then to Skilled Nursing. For this reason I've made a Living Will so that my husband and daughter will hopefully realize they can make choices for me if there ever comes a time that I can not realize what they are doing for me and I can not say thank you and I love you.
