I have two toddlers and a teen, and my dad has been in the hospital since the beginning of May. My mom is in good health, but she is exhausted and stressed and she needs our help with a lot of things. She's been staying with us all summer to be closer to the hospital, but she's gone home now to go back to work. I can check in on my dad on my lunch break, but the evenings are a bit harder because my toddlers can't go to the hospital and my husband works late a lot. He's working late so much because he is having to take care of my dad's business as well as his own business, so cutting back on work isn't really an option for him. I'm trying my best to make sure everyone gets what they need, but I'm not sure that is possible.
We're all tired, and I expect it's going to continue to be this way for a while. I know my family can't be the only one. Are you dealing with something like this? How do you keep it up?
