Warning: A vent

No, not an advent!
Just a vent.
After surviving (just) the three worst days and nights at Mum's I have ever had, returned home to a dirty house!

Just not fair!

Will be putting Mum into respite  for a holiday. Permanently is not far off but that is a very hard call to make on my own and right now I feel very alone.

Any of you in the same position I would appreciate input both bad and good.
I am one of those people who looks at all options, but this is my Mother.

She raised me, although I have far more memories of my Dad, but she is my Mum!
She taught me so much
but I miss the laughter most

It is sad when the situation turns around and we care for our parents. It is also very difficult and I am sure you will weigh up all the options and do what is right for your Mother, for yourself and for the whole family.

It is very difficult and the time she spends in Respite could well be a good time where she realizes that it is the best place for her to be.

Sending love and hugs to you as you settle back into home and deal with the mess you have come home to.

Take care and I send huge hugs.

Love Linda.
