Hello My lot, I am so thankful to say that mom's surgery went well - and with less work for the surgeon than what was thought. Dad well, he's been a challenge - for example I do about 30 things for him to every 1 thing I do for my mom (yes I was keeping track here and there) but I am happy to say he hasn't been too bad and I hope and pray that continues.

Your life sounds a bit like mine. I am glad your mum's surgery went well. Our elderly parents do need a lot of looking after, don't they? Try if you can, to take some time for you as well.

That's what I was hoping for. Not that your dad was going to be 30 times more demanding than your mom, but that seemed likely no matter what I hoped for. The important thing is that the surgery went well and your mom is fine. Everything else is just a minor headache.

It is hard when our parents are old already and it is only us , they rely to take care of them. I hope your mom will recover fast.

@FayeHazel I wonder why he will not help and gets in the way. Doesn't he see that you cannot do it all yourself and he needs to help. What if you get sick? I am so glad her surgery went well. I love the flowers in the photo. Take care of yourself.

Thanks! Those flowers pictures I found online but they are lovely. Thanks for kind wishes - I don't think he can see it, I don't think he counts himself as a lot of work.

@Hannihar So true, no change can happen until he sees it as a problem..... unfortunate
