This past year has brought many unexpected twists and turns. The one that hit the hardest was my mother in law telling us that she had cancer, then going on to having a stroke and passing within a few shorts months. This was all so unexpected and we didn’t have time to process any thing as it was being thrown our way. We had to learn a lot of about health care, long term care, and insurance very quickly. She did not have any advance directives and that made decisions very stressful on the family. When emotions are involved and hope, and the facts as the doctor gives them…it’s just too much. We did the best we could, and we learned a lot from it. After she passed, we moved my father in law in with us for a few months. We had to have those hard talks with him about his wishes. We requested them in writing. If those tough decisions are made BEFORE things go bad, it’s so much easier on everyone.
