Holy Crap!

One of our night time caregivers left us a note yesterday that she wanted a raise or she would be quitting after these last 3 nights. She is getting minimum wage, which is $7.25 for doing nothing except changing a diaper a couple of times a night...no laundry, no meal prep,   no nothing but sitting. Plus, we gave her stuff from our garden...okra, tomatoes, sweet potatoes and pecans. We talked to our day time caregiver about the demands the night lady was asking for and she relayed to her that we were looking for someone else.  The other night caregiver was fine with her pay and wasn't asking for anything. Well, turns out the demander has had a change of heart and doesn't want to quit. She just called me and told me she was going to stay after reading her Bible and praying about it! Yeah...I think God told her we were going to find someone to take her place!

It probably wouldn't hurt to have a list of people willing to take her place no matter if she decided to stay or not.
I hate to think of one of them quitting with no notice.
Your mom still has no control whatsoever of her bathroom habits?
Does she know when she needs to use the bathroom or not?
I know, not something you would usually talk about with a stranger...but I was just wondering if you are trying any kind of schedule with her or anything?
Thank goodness she stayed. I guess one of you could stay the night with her if need be , temporarily.

She is taken to the bathroom on a regular basis and mostly controls it, but at night it is too hard to try to get her up.
