  • Hell no! She didn't raise or take care of me while growing up. No way in hell will I help her out.

  • Yes. We'll have a bedroom waiting for her when she's ready to move in.

  • Nope. She never took care of me. I am taking care of her mother because no one else wants to.

  • Of course. I love my mother, and wouldn't want her cared for by the kind of neglect that is typical of even the best extended care facility.

  • I will but I am not much of a nurturer so I have already told her I will make sure she has the best care ever and she can stay in my guest house or in a room in the house if she wants to be close but I will have nurses and such to do the care. We will have to sets of parents needing tending to, also so we will see how it all works out.

  • I've always planned on it. She's remarrying now after 25 years. I'm so happy for her, but at the same time I'm a little unsure about what I'm supposed to do now...like how I'm supposed to just quit worrying and providing and let her new husband do that now. I feel like I'm standing in a crowd of people being productive with my hands tied to my side. Of course, I realize there is still a possiblity that I'll need to care for her in her old age, and I'll be happy to care for her. It's just weird for me right now. Sorry for rambling...
