Was in Northern Florida a few weeks back to drive my grandfather and grand mother back to florida after My grandfather fell in the bathroom and broke his arm. He is 85 and does not walk well and my grandmother has demensha. I got to there home and it was really bad. No other family lives nearby and we are 900 miles away. The house was full of trash (130 bags to the dumpster worth). Washed all there clothes from I would expect a years worth. I tried to get everything in order to get them care. A nurse, house keeper, physical theropy etc..... I guess it was not enough. My grandma wad not ate anything or drank anything for 3 days and was in serious dehydration and almost died. My grandfather just thought she was sleeping. I came back up here to find a house to buy them that was close to my parents in Hillsboro Illinois. I found one last week. I am heading out in the morning and driving down so I can pack all there sh** and get them up here. If any Northern Florida Busa guys want to go out for a drink, I may need one... Whew!!!! Been stressing all day not thinking my grandma was going to make it. She was lucky and made it out of a coma and is back. Dr was shocked, she should not have made it. Will be in Florida for a week or more.

I think I am beyond stress now. If I was not going on a 14 hour drive tommorrow I might be hitting the bottle. I am not even a drinker, but it sounds good right now. I love Florida. Was born there and love to visit and would love to move back but don't like having to go for reasons like this.

Fate,

Not sure where in N. FL you are going to, but there a few of us around West Central FL (Tampa region). Ironically, I met up with and went riding with CorrodedAlien when he came down from CA to take care of his sick father.

Thanks for the support guys. I am down here now. It is in White Springs. Grandma is in Lake City. She is doing better but her memory is really bad. I don't know if the house thing will work now. I think they need to be more supervised. May have to move them in with me.

Who has Dimensia now!?! Florida sucks! I've lived her 35 miserable years and would LOVE to get the heck outta here but I can't do that until the In-Laws Kick off. When they go room temp, I'm moving to the mountains where there are 4 seasons in a year, Mosqutos are not the size of blue-jays and the Deer are bigger than the Dogs chasin' them!
Oh, Sorry to hear about the Grandparents. You're doing a good thing.
