    It is one of the most exhausting things, to be a care giver... I did that for my husband for over 10 years and until his death... there are good days and tuff days... but I would not allow anyone else to take care of him...I think it is the ultimate act of love...

    Hang in there and rest when you can... *hugs*....

    Very challenging to be a caregiver, midnight. My thoughts go out to you.
