Taking Care of Elderly Grandparents

My mom and I are taking care of my 90 yr old grandparents. The last month or so has been mentally taxing and physically exhausting. I am the maid, short order cook, night nurse, gardener, psychiatrist, chamber maid, wound nurse, etc. ad infinitum! I throw out about 15 lbs of soaked Depends per day. We have to put their meds in their mouth (otherwise they'll choke). In the last two months only two hours went by without one of them screaming for me. Last week, we found out my grandmother's biopsy was cancer. I feel so bad for them, but I'm the one that feels used and abused. They refuse to go to any type of facility, they are not sick enough for hospice, so they tell me. The rest of my family says "How hard can it be to take care of two 90 yr olds?" Ha, I'm treated like a genie who can fix anything! But, I can't fix everything. Last Friday we had to call the ambulance and my grandmother finally went to the hospital. Today she was moved to a nursing home for about 20 days. I have seen her walk, but usually she refuses. Her thigh muscles have atrophied and I know the PT person there will get her back into shape. I haven't had to wipe her butt for one week, and I've actually slept ALL night the last couple of days. I may sound like an awful bitch, but I'm at the end of my rope. You should see my mother! She's on the verge of a nervous breakdown. What do you do with two people that lie on their back and scream your name at the top of their lungs to bring them juice while they are sitting on the commode and other little things. Any suggestions?  (Jan 28, 2011 | post #1)

john kenney found guilty in grimes killings

Just because someone is old doesn't mean he's warm and fuzzy. An old finger can pull the trigger on a gun as well as a younger one. Are YOU crazy for even trying to justify what this old windbag did to two nice people. Just listen to the 911 call from Elizabeth Grimes and her dying words to her husband, "I love you!" I hope that old fart gets what he deserves from another prisoner - smack dab in the middle of his back! May the Mel and Elizabeth rest in peace. Oh, by the way it's scary, bozo!  (Jan 28, 2011 | post #116)
