You really make the rounds don't you!!! Sorry to hear about your troubles. I agree about telling m-i-l about her sister passing. . . Snow and Lyn made good point about feeling her out first.
Dad thinks that his house is a boarding house. He takes his flashlight and goes upstairs a couple times a day to see if anyone is up there. When my brother visits from out of town, Dad reminds him not to leave his room too long or others will take his place. Dad also intorduces me as his mother. I don't think that he thinks I'm his mother, but he can't get the daughter word to come out and mother is close enough to suit him.
You are a good man to visit with her. How has your daughter been doing? Any news from the doc yet?
