    Notes 
    •  From daughter Catherine via email on 19 Jul 2009: I'm not sure if I told you or not, but I am the primary caregiver of my mother who is terminally ill.Fridays and Saturdays can sometimes be overwhelming as I deal with my housework, her, groceries etc.

      From Catherine via email on 19 Jul 2009: I asked mom when Aunt Lillian got married butunfortunately my mother's mind is not quite what it used to be. She was fine earlier in the evening but as the evening wore on she couldn't even remember how Aunt Lillian got to be an Arbour. I will keep trying.

      Story from Catherine via email on 19 Aug 2009: My mother's sister owns a cottage on the Quebec side. We used to spend many a summer weekend there . . . that in itself is funny because my mother is terrified of all "nature". She hates bugs, mice, snakes, etc. Anyway we were all at Aunt Irene's cottage, I was about 15 at the time. My mother was having a grand old time. She decided she was going to entertain everyone with her singing and dancing - night time in the country is dark - very dark. My mother tripped over a fallen tree and broke a couple of toes. She refuses to go to the hospital because she has been drinking. Monday morning we are home again and mom calls our family doctor. The doctor has an opening so mom goes. The doctor took some x-rays and tells mom three toes are broken and she puts these little splint thingies on them. She asks my mother how she broke her toes and my mother tells her: Al Cool. The doctor is confused and thinks it's a person. Mom does not clear up the doctor's confusion. Alcool was a brand of gin (I believe) at the time.

      Story from Catherine via email on 19 Aug 2009: About 6 years ago my mother decided to change her carpeting. She got a good deal (on the Quebec side) but you had to install it yourself. Mom convinced Rod (my sister's hubby) andI to do it. We picked the following Saturday. Mom asked if itwould be okay for Aunt Kay to come over for the weekend. I said yes, because I thought it would keep mom out of our hair as we worked. Rod and I got busy (about 9 am) and ripped outall the old carpeting and scraped away the underlay that had stuck to the hardwood floors. It was hot and nasty work. We worked all day. Rod had to be home for 6 and I told him that I could finish up on my own. I justhad the hallway and stairs leading to the basement to do. He left. Mom has been steadily drinking all day and I kept trying to get her to eat to no avail. At 6 I told her I was taking a supper break and that if she didn't eat I would force feed her. She said she would eat. I went upstairs to eat and came back down an hour later. When I got in I could tell that she hadn't eaten but she told me that she had ordered food for her and Aunt Kay from the local pizza place (Fred's). I get busy with the carpeting, about 10 minutes later I see flashing blue lights outside the living room window. Then Isee two police officers heading to the door. Mom makes it to the door before I do. And she says: "Where's my pizza?" to the officers. The officers asksher what the emergency is just as I'm running to the door. I say there's no emergency how can I help you officer? As my Aunt Kay swings her head around the door and says, don't forget the wings. I push both mom and Aunt Kay out of the way and go out on the verandah with the police. The male officer tells me that they got a 911 call from this address. I tell him that I know for certain that my mother nor my aunt could have made the call becauseI was right there and they were noton the phone. THEN THE LIGHT BULB goes off in my head and I ask them to wait a moment. I go back in and yell down in to the basement where my brother is - surprisehe's drunk. I asked him if he called 911. He says, I don't know but I called somebody and told them we were hungry but it wasn't an emergency yet. I curse and run back outside and I looked at the officer and said rather wearily just shoot me and put me out of my misery. The lady officer asks if I'm okay and I explain theentire day and situation to her. She is sympathetic; the male officer - not so much. We don't joke about shooting people. The lady officer speaks to him quietly and he settles down. Of course I realize it was a stupid thing to say I tell himBUTyou don't live with these nuts-- I do. Anyway the police leave with the warning that if they get another call they will have to arrest someone - I was actually thinking of begging God to let mom or Ricky call again. I go back in and mydarlingmother and aunt ask where the food is. I tell them that neither one of them is the brightest crayon in the box and that that was the police not Fred's delivery. Mom says, well, what didthey want???? I just looked at her and went backto work.When I saw the headlights of another car I was at the door in two seconds flat. It was Fred's. I paid him. They ate. I finished my work and went upstairs. Brendan had been out for a while when he got back I tell him tearfully what has happened. He starts laughing his head off - I could have choked him. The next day I go downstairs and mom and Aunt Kay are having their morning coffee. I ask them if they remember last night - neither one does - I tell them what happened. Mom looksatme and tells me not to make up stories. My brother Ricky looks at me and apologizes. Mom looks at me again and says, you mean it's true. Oh yes, I say, and guess what you old darlings, next time I won't interfere and I'll let them cart you all away.

      I always tell people I run an old age home - it's kind of true - my mother and my two brothers who live with her downstairs are all older than I am. AND I do take care of them - making sure they have food, clothes etc.

      From Cathy via email on 11 Dec 2010: Mum is still hanging on. Her weight is now hovering around 80 pounds. I am still working mornings - I get home around11:20 am. My brothers have been helping a bit more with housework and meals but I have 100% of the mom's care. My sister is not around much to help.
      ___

      From Cathy via email on 10 Sep2011: My mother's health declined in March and I was forced (happily) to leave my job and I now stay home and carefor her full-time. Within days of this happening my father-in-law ended up in hospital with 3 broken ribs and a life threatening blood clot -- all of this on top of his Parkinsons.
