Sorry to have to delay today's post. When an elderly parent has a health event some established patterns may need to be temporarily changed. As important as learning when to "let go," is the learning to:
- Prioritize and do what needs to be done
- Permit some slack where possible to reduce stress and have a bit of time to regroup--or even take a nap!
Tomorrow afternoon I will hear Gail Sheehy (writer and author of Passages among other books) discuss her new--and we are told--"most personal" book Passages in Caregiving.
