Guest Posted February 27, 2004 Share Posted February 27, 2004 I am posting as a guest cos sometimes my mom reads the board.My dad is a good man, but I don't think he is cut out to take care of my mom at all. He has no patience and doesnt know what to do. I live over 400 miles away. I plan to take FMLA when the time comes, but I just know she has more than 90 days--God I hope so. She is lost. She had only lived in the area a few months before DX and she is a private person. My parents can barely afford the medicine let alone a nurse. I have to work to help pay the medicines. I am only 27 and don't make a lot either. They lost their house and may lose their rental too. So I must keep my job. My mom needs someone to help her. Dad travels--and has cut down some but is afraid if he cuts down too much he will lose his job--and what insurance they have. He is in sales. He hasn't been with that company long--about a year. He came before mom came and she hadn't found a job yet when she arrived. I am so scared for both of them. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
