I did it while my Mom was sick and my son was 3, that was in 2000. Then in 2005 my father had a stroke and he was in our home, my 2 younger ones were babies, that was very hard. You get your strength from family, rely on them for help if you can. Believe me time goes by so slow during it but I would give anything to have my parents back, not sick of course, but I would hope one day that my boys will do the same for me.. So maybe seeing that you're there unconditionally, your children will learn from it and become better people for it. My sisters all have regrets now, wish they could have been there, at least you we don't have that...
