Have any of you known someone in a situation like this? My brother in law had MS. He has progressed pretty fast. He is still able to get up and walk with a walker. But is not wheelchair bound yet. Maybe at times he needs a little assistance with things. But all in all I think he is still very independent. His wife however is sick of taking care of him and is threatening to put him in a nursing home. Her daughter sent out an email to a family member stating that her mother finally got the doctors to agree to put him in a home and that it is no choice of her mom's, it's the doctors who say he's safer there. I think she full of crap personally. I have taken him to his doctor appointments and everyone there always seems happy with how he's doing. Also, there is a financial issue. He is on Medicare and I know there are long waiting lists for people on medicare to get into nursing homes. Is there any way that a wife could do that to someone? Against their will? Because I can tell you he would die first before going to a home. We have offered to have him come live with us but the wife keeps saying no. Is there any way to get around the wife to make sure gets a say in how he lives? I think he might have to divorce her, but if that is what it takes, so be it. We are going over there in a few days to ask him what HE wants. It's such a crazy situation.
