Caregiving Crosshairs

puzzle-1686917_640So tonight, my wife begins IVIG infusion therapy treatments again, my daughter has a choir concert, and I have a gala to attend. Nothing can give.

My wife has fallen three times in the past month and must begins these treatments. She typically does six months on and six months off, two nights per month for about four hours each. And it really helps her. So, my son will stay with her and the nurse who comes to our home (via a large pharmacy chain) to administer the treatments.

My daughter is in 9th grade and she can't just skip the choir concert, so my in-laws will attend this event. Luckily, she understands the un-ideal situation.

I am the Executive Director for a non-profit and we receive a considerable chunk of funding as the secondary recipient at this Gala that generates $250k+. It's the kind of thing the Director is sort of expected to attend. And it's the kind of funding we would like to continue to receive.

Ahh, the caregiving crosshairs.

Hopefully, we'll all be fine anyway.
