Ah, the joy of caregiving. Although this was taken after Dad's lung infection in December 2007 B.C. (Before Cancer), it's a picture that speaks a thousand words. It verbalises so beautifully why I am an excellent caregiver, and why I have not lost my mind over all the stresses, fears, worries, anxieties .. there was no mind to lose.
P.S. the mad caregiver - me - is on the right; the silently suffering sedate care recipient - Dr. Tonsils of egg-painting fame - is on the left.
P.P.S. Don't miss the green snake in the background .. oh, all right, it's just a garden hose.
