2 of Bill's sisters came to visit him today. They did more visiting with my daughter and I than my husband, but that was because he was sleeping. They didn't know he was a bad as he is. They told me that they would understand if I needed or decided to put him in a nursing home. I have had the best 24 years of my life married to him than I have ever had being married to my first husband and being a child. I FEEL like I owe my life to him and as long as I am able, willing, strong enough, and capable, I will take care of him right here in our house. I've already had some stressful days and I've been told it's only going to get worse. If I put him in a nursing home,he will die there. I told that to his sisters and one of them said he will die here. They have one brother in a nursing home already and several of their brothers and sisters and their mother and father died in a nursing home. I guess it doesn't matter to them one way or the other. Maybe they had no one to take care of them. I don't know, but as long as I am able, I will care for my husband here.
