We went through almost an identical thing


My mom died of Alzheimers last February. For almost 10 years, my dad diligently sat by her side, first in their home, then, begrudgingly, at an assisted living facility. My dad lived in his home across the street from the facility and visited several times a day.

It aged him (he is 86 now, no spring chicken to begin with), but he never took a day off. Barely missed a meal. It was remarkable.

Fortunately, my dad is still with us, and is starting to come out of the darkness of that time, shake off the cobwebs of depression, and socialize. What your dad did, and what mine did, requires a strength I cant even put into words. I hope I never get put to the test like that, and I also hope I will be as strong if I need to be.
