Charlie, it certainly IS overwhelming. I think it's harder on the caregiver than the patient. Therefore, you absolute MUST find some time for yourself. It's not selfish, it's a necessity. Otherwise, you will burn out. Get some respite care for your wife once in awhile, so you can go do something for yourself. I know all the caregivers and former caregivers here will agree.
Sue, people get sick from airplane travel all the time, as the air is recycled. I would like to have seen your pink cat! I had a pure white one who turned yellow during the time that I smoked. LOL I quit 7 yrs. ago this month, so when he died last summer, he was pure white again.
