It's been quite a challenge, that's for sure.

Every day I get up with the attitude that today will be better than yesterday, and keep trying.

But being the "baby" of the family, I don't really ever expect Mom or Dad to listen to my guidance very much.

I'm not a hands on caregiver, as that would never work, but I run errands, keep paper work, provide transportation (as mom doesn't drive), and etc. When I really need them to listen to me though, I get my brother to do it. ;)
