I got away from home today and far from the issues at home. That's one way to appreciate having a job that gets you out of the house. My husband and his sister who had knee replacement surgery, had a yelling match and gripe session on the way to her therapy. She has been sneaking extra pain medicine behind his back and he had to explain the harm and seriousness of that action. In her state of anger she got a ride from therapy and stayed with a friend until 5 PM. After that he decided to let her take over her own care. He's been doing her pan baths, preparing her meals, monitoring her exercises, giving her a shot in the belly, buying her supplies and paying for them, running her business without compensation and just being very sweet. He told her today that she can take care of herself, while she stays at our house. This is the best arrangement and this way he will not be so resentful that she is using him. That will help her get rehabed faster. He has already paid a couple thousand dollars to help with her medical expenses. I feel sorry he has volunteered to do this, as i made the suggestion to help her without realizing she would expect so much from us.
There's always a drawback to every good action. I am very proud of my husband and my family for being so kind, even if she has not been very nice back.
