I would like to thank everyone for their prayers. I ended up staying with my parents for the last few months and they took turns coming and going from hospital. We have now placed them into a lovely nursing home 16 minutes away. I started packing up their home while I was there and my husband and brother took loads of their belongings to our place and we ended up having 2 garage sales. They have settled very well and like it there.

Could I ask you to add my husband's twin brother Wayne to your prayer list, he has been given 3 years to live. He has a lung disease and at the age of 67 has been told he is too old to have a lung transplant. thank you in advance.
I am going off the grid for a few months and will catch up when we get back.

Wayne will be in my prayers.
I hope you will find some rest after all you had to go through, It must give you piece of mind knowing that your parents like their new home. That is always the most difficult part. Now it is time for you to get a breather

What a load off of your shoulders to have your parents someplace that you don't have to constantly worry about them 24/7. It took a lot of convincing my Mom after my Dad passed to move to independent living. I still worry, but not like I did when she was living alone. Sending hugs for your entire family during these difficult times.

thank you, I feel completely at peace, they were told that this is now their new home and they can decorate it to make it feel like home.

What a relief you must feel knowing that your parents are comfortable and content only 16 miles away. I will pray that your brother-in-law will have many more years than predicted and also for you and your love ones.

I hope you are able to get some peace and rest for yourselves. You have had way too much on your plate. I'm glad your parents are doing well in their new home I hope Wayne is able to live the remainder of his life with joy and manage to do all he wants to do. And yes, prayers will continue.

Dear Barbara, I am so sorry to read the news about your husband's twin brother. I do hope he survives longer than the 3 years given and that he finds comfort and peace during his treatment. Happy to read your parents are settled in their new nursing home. It's always a sad time and I pray that you get some rest now. Love and blessings Chris

It is a huge undertaking and wrenches your heart--we've had to go thru it with our parents. And now I feel so much concern for our son, who will have to do the same with us. DH had a stroke 2 yrs ago and I'm managing care of him, but one day I won't be able to do that--maybe not even for myself. I'm so glad your parents are happy--ours were not, and that can deepen the sadness one feels. You take all the time you need--we will still be here! Prayers for your BiL

Sometimes we have to place members away from their home and they seem to do better than us. It's good they are so close at 16 minutes away. I'm sorry to hear about your BIL and all you've had to deal with. I hope things get better for you and those you love.
