Finally, that chapter is over. The person who took advantage of them can no longer hurt them financially again. My sisters and I fought the good fight. We stepped in, took care of them and protected them the best we could, and after a five year waiting period they are now on Medicaid. A week ago we moved them to a beautiful assisted living facility where all of their needs will be met and they will be happy and safe.
Sadly, my father had a fall that required brain surgery and he is still in a rehabilitation center. He is doing well, but still has a way to go to recovery. The good news is that he knows us and his memory is pretty good.
When I got the news that my parents Medicaid was approved, I wept. All the fretting and worrying is finally over. This dark shadow has been hanging over me for so long, I still don't think I realize the impact it will make on my life to have this heavy burden lifted.
Praise the Lord for giving us strength and getting us through. I thank God for my dear sisters who were such support through it all. We made an awesome team. I thank God for my husband and kids who supported me as well.
I am no longer a housekeeper, errand runner, bookkeeper, defender or caregiver to my parents. Now I just get to be a daughter again and really enjoy them.
God is so Good! God is so faithful!
