Tada! Getting to spend time in my own home has become a commodity in the past 5 months due to my mother's failing health. I just spent another week with Mom and Dad so my brother could go on vacation to Branson. He was on his way back home yesterday due to snow in Branson, so I came back to my home. He sees Mom and Dad everyday and is close enough physically to them that he can be there in a minute. Recently, Dad had to call him in the middle of the night because Mom had fallen and broken a rib and Dad could not get her up. She had been on the floor for 5 hours when dad found her. Due to situations such as this my brother and I believe that one of us should be nearby at all times now. I am even beginning the search for a place to live in the Shreveport-Bossier City area. I really do not want to move, but I have to do what is right!
