So much has happened in the two days. I have been taking care of my ex husband for the last several months. It is a long story. He suffers from a dementia brought on by years of alcohol abuse. He is perfectly fine in the present moment, but he forgets everything 5 min. later. He let my dog out to follow him to the store without a leash. The dog was hit by a car and suffered a fractured femur. A neighbor witnessed the incident. His response was to throw his hands up and say oh well it's only a dog. The dog will under go surgery in two hours to repair the damage. The same day I got a call from my mother. She has a compression fracture of the lower lumbar. I will be taking care of my precious Gizmo and my mother. The ex's family, who does not want him, will have to step up and deal with him. I can't even look at him. My 20 year old continues lives in the cottages and has his ups and downs.
