I told her that we worry about her when she's alone. She thought perhaps she could stay with DH's cousin, but DH added that DH's cousin wasn't always home either. Then she said she had some information about some places (that the case manager had given her) and she would look into it. I told her I would help her any way I could. I added that she still was welcome to stay the winter, just not when we would be gone.

No doubt she has been pondering about it through the night, and we will talk again today. She didn't seem upset, so it believe it went pretty good,
I'm so happy for you! She'll be fine, and you'll have a guilt-free trip w/ your dd! Perfect!!!!

To just put her there and noone visit for 3 weeks is cruel.

And i deal with a sibling who never visits our Mom now-even when the rest of us left for a week for my son's wedding out of state. He could care less.
I don't recall seeing anywhere where the OP said no one would be visiting.

Prepare your child for the path, not the path for your child.
Stop telling your God how big the storm is. Instead, tell the storm how big your God is.
It's time to put on your big girl panties and deal with it!
Don't be so open-minded that your brains fall out.
There's no pill that cures stupid.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

Honestly I think you just present it the best you can. How you do that exactly well your DH would probably know best as it depends on her personality.

As for going away. I definitely think you should do it. Just thinking how hard it is to care for a baby or small child all the time with no breaks I can't imagine having to care for an adult that didn't think they needed to be cared for (My DH's grandmother was like this to some extent and I could only stand being around her for a few hours at a time so in my opinion managing all your doing practically makes you a saint!)

Go enjoy, relax and have a great time. It will be great for the health of you and your DD.
