Our family is DH and DD (downs syndrome, 41 years old). My 90 year old MIL has been staying with us for the past 2 winters and expects to stay this winter as well. She has just had major surgery. A lobe of her lung was removed (lung cancer) . She is staying with us for her recuperation which we were told would be about 6 weeks. However, because of her age, it is a hard recovery. I'm sure she will be here till April. DH doesn't trust her to be alone in our house, but DD and I want to go back to WDW. We spoke with her case manager and there are nursing homes she can stay at for short term ($35.00 a day) but these have to be booked well in advance before you make vacation plans. DH works away from home for days at a time, and he can't book 3 weeks off work to stay with her. I tell you, I really need a vacation. This woman is very high maintenence. She's a nice lady, so I'm trying very hard to not get resentful. DD has a myriad of health problems and WDW is her happy place. Because of the logistics, we stay at least 3 weeks, and she simply thrives when there. If we could get MIL to agree with staying in a nursing home for a few weeks we could make some plans. Any suggestion how we can phrase it so she would be more acceptable to the idea? It's not like we are refusing to care for her, but I need a break.
