Wow - been gone all weekend and there has been a LOT happening here!
@Pedidoc - I'm SO sorry to hear about your dog. It does really hurt to say goodbye to our little 4 legged friends. We've had to put down 2 in the past 6 months. Zeus (4 year old Basset) has hip dysplasia, so we're not sure how long he's going to hold out. I do hope it doesn't hurt for too long.
Looks like a lot of discussion about aging/failing parents. I can relate. MIL is starting to do all kinds of weird things. She's 88. Her oldest son has moved back in with her to keep an eye on her and do the housework and cooking. But she is starting to say things that didn't happen. Over the weekend she saw a few of us talking and told her oldest son that we were all talking about another family member - which we weren't. She is nearly blind and about 70% deaf, so I know she wasn't able to hear anything we were saying - but in her mind we were talking badly about someone. She's been doing this a lot over the past 6 months. Its really hard to see happen.
Sometimes I think I will be glad when this stage of life is over - but then there is always another stage (be it good or bad) waiting on the other side. Life is just hard sometimes.
