    your pain...having felt it themselves at some time.  I hope you and the Mr. will take some time to take care of yourselves.  This is very stressful and you don't want your health, etc., to be negatively affected... more than that reasonably to be expected in such situations.

    Sometimes we learn too late that there's only so much we can do.  Nothing we do will make it better after some point of decline...mental or physical or both.    One of our elderly passed from "failure to thrive" which I found is an actual diagnosis.   Nothing critically wrong...just lots of little things that he blew up into big things...and he stopped "living."  Took about a year of misery for everyone...including him.  Talking to him did nothing.  

    Take care of yourselves too.
