other chapters of our Baby Boomer Saga concerning our aging parents
The BIG question facing my family today is, "What do you do when one or both of your beloved family members suffer a
quality of life threatening disease like a stroke, congestive heart failure and pneumonia?"
I sit here at my computer with tears
rolling down my cheeks. FEAR of the unknown threatens my peace and financial security like the "sword of Damocles," hanging by a thin thread above my head.
As the water from my broken heart splashes onto my keyboard, I think of all of you other
Baby Boomers in my shoes, soon to be or already there.
Are you also facing or in the midst of dealing with the gut wrenching
decisions of what to do with your parents? I am crying for my mom and dad and our grandkids and their parents.
Is out lifestyle as we now know it changed forever?
Radical changes are now forced upon us by events forged in the
nightmares of our dreams. Not in our wildest imaginations did we ever consider life threatening diseases would impact our family. Are you suffering a similar situation also?
What am I to do now that quality of life threatening diseases have catastrophically struck both my mom and dad within two months?
A massive stroke, congestive heart failure and pneumonia have devastated my family in the last two months. My mom, at 88, barely survived
pneumonia and congestive heart failure, in March of this year. My dad, at the age of 82, on Sunday, May 23, suffered a massive stroke. He is still in critical care and is paralyzed on the left side.
Will he make it out of the hospital alive? What will happen to my mom?
Why is it
so hard for parents to accept the advice of their kids?
If only my mom and dad had taken to heart more advice about how to be
healthier over the last 40 years. They witnessed how dramatically the different alternative, complimentary, natural and holistic therapies helped me and Janet.
Why wouldn't they at least try some of the therapies that were so beneficial before catastrophe struck?
of knowing our loved ones don't have to suffer catastrophic diseases like heart attack, stroke, pneumonia, cancer and congestive heart failure wrenches my soul. My frustration levels are off the chart.
"What can you do when the answers are right in front of your face and your family members don't want to listen?"
Preventive therapies are worth their weight in gold!
How true is this statement, especially when it is too late?
Why do people spend more money on their cars, houses, toys and vacations than their health? Why do they seek after wealth and material possessions, sacrificing their health in the process?
I almost scream out loud, "WAKE UP!"
Am I such an evil person? I constantly fight against the compulsion to take
all my family members and friends by their shirts and try to shake some sense into them.
In the inner recesses of my mind I am screaming, "Change your ways before it is too late."
I know. I know! Screaming
at people you love and shaking them like a dog worries a bone is not politically correct. I promise all my dear friends, family members and visitors not to touch one hair on your head.
But, I will ruffle the feathers of your mind and plead with you to take advantage of the FREE valuable information available at HealthyDoctors.

Janet and I are now facing the thing everyone in the Baby Boomer Generation fears.
It is time to step up to the
plate. Do we have the emotional and financial reserves that are required to make my parents' final days as joyful, peaceful and comfortable as possible?
Are we willing to give back for all the love, caring and support from my mom and dad over 55 years?
grateful enough to radically change our current lives? What can we do to take care of them the best we possibly can?
Choosing between the grandkids and taking care of dying parents is an agonizing decision.
Janet and I moved to
Dallas five years ago to help raise the grandkids and emotionally and financially support our son and daughter-in-law. Life these days seems so difficult on their generation...light years different
from the 50s and 60s.
Our decision to help my parents breaks
the hearts of many in the family.
As Janet and I drive from Dallas to San Diego on Wednesday, to help take care of my mom and dad, a
trail of tears marks our path. The sweet smiling faces of our dear sweet grandchildren and the bitter tears of parting streaming down their cheeks haunts our memories.
"What therapies can reverse or minimize the harmful effects of a massive stroke, pneumonia and congestive heart failure?" will be Janet's and my focus for the next month.
