i am moving rooms around. we decided to have my friend that is 77 years old come stay with us for a while.for about 6 weeks she has been so sick (the worst pnuemonia i ever saw - two ambulance rides, 2 hospitalizations and a rehab center) and lives an hour away out in the middle of nowhere on a dirt street. her breathing is still taxed as well as her joints are hurting and she is very weak so my guest room upstairs is not gonna work out for her. i am trying to empty out as much of my office as i can and then will move a bed down here for her. there is a bathroom right next to the room she'd be in so it is a good solution till she gets on her feet again. it may mean that i am not on here as much (or at all) since my desk/computer has to stay in this room. she is coming tomorrow and the plan is for a week and re-evaluate until she can get her strength back. there just is no reason for her to be out there when i have room for her here. her son lives about two miles from me but he is a PITA and made her feel like a burden so she left without telling anyone and went home alone. it all pisses me off -- you don't treat elders that way. she needs help and by gosh, she's gonna get it! plus her dr's are all here in my town so i feel safer with her close to them. it is a shame to be elderly and alone.....

I'm glad she has you. Hope she makes a full recovery quickly, the poor dear. Then she can go give her "son" a swift kick in the pants.

I'm glad that she has you. Shame on her son for not being there for her. That makes me so sad.

So sad about her son, but how lovely of you to take her in. I hope she recovers well and that you'll still be able to check in.

I am glad you will be able to help. But let's not hastily pile on the son. I am sure if you just heard my parents side, I would sound like a real loser.
