Yesterday, I had both parents in wheelchairs leaving the hospital -- Mom because of the distance, coupled with the MS, would poop her out, and Dad because of the surgery. In years to come, I might have to address this more and more, especially with mom's disease. That's one of the reasons, when looking for a house, I made sure there was a downstairs bedroom...
And that's just *my* parents. While Jen's parents are around the same age and relatively healthy, what's to say that one of them could take ill and need care as well? *sigh*
Of course, what happens to Jen and I when we get old? We're not planning on kids. Our parents will be gone. She's an only child, and I practically am.* The only young'un we've got is my nephew, who is "only" 15 years younger than Jen.
