Mom passed away 2 yrs ago March and dad refused to leave a 5 bdrm house ......had to stay with all the memories the gardens everything..........
He ended up only using 1 room basically and that was it ........His DEN
He would not even turn on the Television in the Living Room as Mom use to sleep in there on the couch
I and others had suggessted that he get roomates and he definitely DID NOT want that under no circumstances ......
I could not live there at all
My sister ( even though when Mom was alive ) did nothing for her nor Dad but Cait Howie and I did
WE were not there one wknd Mom had been taken to hospital saw my Doctor ( our Doc ) and he said she had a " touch" of Pneumo and sent her home to rest with antibiotics and meds ..........
MY sister then decided to rip down 80 yr old wallpaper and PAINT in the kitchen and part of LR just about
near mom with no thoughts of what the fumes from paint and mold from wallpaper would do at all
Mom was rushed back to hospital I was not informed til next day and I got to see her being airlifted out of that hospital to a bigger one in London......
I called that night ...no visitors ......she was resting but not in great shape they said ........I went to get the phone the next morning at 5:50 am Mom was gone
I tell you this only as I know what you will face or might face and you are going to have to stand your ground ........I did ...I had to as you well know what stress and other influences have on our D Crohns
I have moved Dad to Strathroy where I live put house up for sale .........he is in a self contained lil apartment AND the landlord let him keep his dog so I have to say he is very happy as am I and very close by us
We both needed the move too many memories there good and bad....everyone knew your business BEFORE you did lol
You and Eric have just gotten Married and I think someone else whoever the one is Executor will have to deal with this when time comes not you n Eric
All I can say in closing sweetie is make some memories......... good ones ....keep telling her how much you love her and what she has done for you and your life .........
I will keep you in my heart thoughts and prayers along with your Nan and Mom .....Grampa too .......
This does not mean she will be gone right away hun she is comfy and w/o pain be happy for that for her as I know you are
