An Open Apology from Shadowryter

Hi all, as you all know I had Penny close my DISign thread back in October due to family issues. I had all but the best of intentions to come back and finish the requests on my thread which I have with many of you. My mother, who is 79, has many medical conditions and my father, also 79, and has Alzheimerís moved in with me, my husband and daughter a few months ago. Life has been hectic with this new living situation but to make matters worse on November 4th my mom fell off of the dining room chair resulting in a hip fracture. She has since gone through surgery and has been in rehab these past 3 Ĺ weeks.

I have now learned first hand how difficult it is to live with a parent with Alz. Thereís a lot of arguments, mostly about him taking his meds and wanting to take money out of their joint bank account (all of it!) so he can buy lottery tickets and go to Dunkin Donuts. Since my husband works nights I have been driving dad to the rehab center to visit mom in the evenings with his car. Not a problem but two nights ago he took off with the car in the evening and was gone for too long. I thought he may have gone to visit my mom but that wasnít the case. Reluctantly I had no choice but to call 911 and report him missing.

A couple of hours later he was at my door with an officer who came inside and talked to my dad which resulted in him surrendering his license. Dad was obviously hurt and then angry which resulted in him leaving on foot the next day only to get lost and driven home by the same officer. I am now ďdead to himĒ, but I know itís just words from a man with this horrible disease but itís been hard.

Now that I have finished my rant I just wanted to apologize for not completing your requests. I can only hope that you found someone else to help you out as there are many extremely talented DISignerís on this thread. I do have some requests still in the works and will try to finish them by the time they are needed. Itís very hard when you arenít allowed to concentrate on doing something that you love so much without distraction.

Mom will be released in a couple of weeks. Not looking forward to this Christmas, the only good thing is she will be home and dad will be dadÖ.some days. I hope that youíll come back to my thread when I reopen it in the Spring. Iím sorry for those I missed and apologize if I canít get to you in time. I hope that all of you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and I'll see you in the Spring.
