Thanksgiving with Bil will be the last Thanksgiving of the status quo. I know that now.
My mother in law's days are numbered before she suffers another fall. She increasingly is losing energy. She has the will, and has a very positive attitude, but her constant pain and other problems are wearing her down. She would have had to be superhuman not to become more and more wore down.
During our visit down to Bil, we spent a couple of hours filling out Bil's Medicaid renewal paperwork. We still don't have a clear indication of how he latest budget cuts will impact Bil, but his Medicaid Service Coordinator has such a heavy caseload that she can barely keep track of Bil any more.
We will see my mother in law next at Christmastime.
