Coming Up for Air #NoAtoZChallenge

It has been such a roller coaster ride, these last two months.

My mother in law has developed signs of dementia.  She goes to the doctor one day and forgets the next.  We found out the hard way, when she had not taken her medications in a couple of days.

It was a game changer, especially when a housing opportunity finally opened for Bil. We had to get (with family help) a lot of things together in a brief amount of time, but we all did it.

"Bil", my autistic brother in law, is now living in a supportive apartment about a five minute drive from where my husband and I live.  He lives there four days a week and spends the other three days with his mother. 

Her needs have exceeded what we can all provide and she now has a part time home health care aide.  She will run out of money in less than a year, though, and we don't know what we will do then.

It's all so exciting, I haven't had time to blog, and I will not be participating this year in the Blogging from A to Z challenge.

If you are one of my readers, and you do intend to A2Z, let me know, and I will be visiting your blog from time to time.

That's a promise.
