I am so exhausted today; even though I’m sleeping through the night, the quality of my sleep is just not there. All that’s going on with my FIL is emotionally and mentally draining, he has added emotional extortion to his manipulation techniques. I get it, he’s afraid, no one wants to be in the rehab\nursing home but it’s temporary and he is very ill, we do not posses the medical skills to provide safe and proper medical care for him.

Ah it's Sunday, how I miss the slow Sunday mornings, but today I get to enjoy it. Our Uncle is spending the day with my FIL trying to give us all some mental space from eachother. I'm going to take advantage of this to relax for an hour and then catch up on housework, food shopping and prepping meals for an easier week.

He patiently waits only to get a call from the rehab letting him know Dad is back...the girl at the desk never told him to come back! When he gets to the rehab Dad tells him the doctor said he doesn't like the way th...
