My parents have been pretty much our sole support since this awful stroke, even though they reside 1400 miles away. When Bob was hospitalized, they flew here and stayed an entire month until Bob was finally discharged from ICU. Since then, they've been back to visit twice and call us every single day to "check in" and make sure we are all right. They have helped us through all of this both financially and emotionally. Honestly, I don't know how we would have survived without them.

Chalk it up to my frazzled, overwhelmed, chaotic caregiving world. And my inability to even get to the store more than once or twice monthly (when, God love her, my friend Chris can sit with Bob) because I cannot afford to hire someone to sit with Bob. But those are just excuses. Albeit good ones.
So Mom, sorry about the card. But consider this post your Mother's Day gift. For you are truly the best and most beautiful mother in the world. And we both appreciate all you have done for us and continue to do. And I love you, very much!
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
With Lots of Love
Bob & Me
& your four-legged grandkids!
