My mom and dad as happy as can be!!

My mom is THE BEST!!!!

My mom is a Saint! My dad has been recently diagnosed with the horrible disease of ALS (June 2008). He is a strong person who has had to depend on others for the past year and a half. My mom has been by his side through it all. She quit her job to stay home and become his caretaker. My dad is in a wheelchair and can't walk, talk, eat (feeding tube), itch, comb his hair, pretty much anything. He blinks for yes and that is about it up to this point. ALS is a fatal disease with a 3-5 year prognosis rate. My mom has been so strong physically and emotionally. She is only 5'2" and lifts my dad in and out of bed on her own. He still has his pride and that is one thing my mom will make sure he keeps. She has been amazing. My mom and dad have been together for almost 34 years (August 16). They have 3 children and 5 wonderful granchildren. We love both my mom and dad so much that it hurts. My mom amazes me every day with her strength and courage. She explains things to us kids and the grandkids. She can almost read my dad's mind when he needs something. She tries to maintain a positive attitude all the while watching the only man she has ever loved suffers everyday. She has her moments when emotions get the best of her but who wouldn't. She is there for my dad every minute of every day. She never leaves his side. I stay with my dad for 15 minutes once a week so my mom can go to the grocery store. She tries to buy things to cook for one person that do not smell good in the house because of my dad. She has the biggest heart in the world. She calls me if she knows one of my kids are sick to see how they are doing. She worries about others and sends cards to make sure they know she is thinking about them. My mom deserves the "Pamper your Mom" prize. There are days my mom doesn't even get her shower because she is to busy getting my dad his shower, brushing his teeth, combing his hair, cleaning his ears, feeding him, giving meds, paying bills, taking my dad to the restroom, visiting with company, fixing his wheelchair, suctioning out my dad's excess saliva, or any number of things. She is the best mom, wife, and friend known to mankind (at least in my eyes). I thank God every day that my dad has her and that she has my dad. They were made for each other. I am the luckiest person alive to have them as parents. Thank you for giving me this oppotunity to tell you how wonderful, amazing, strong, courageous, and a true angel my mom is to her family and many others.

This close, loving family is going through an extremely tough time. What impresses me is how it's bringing them even closer together instead of tearing them apart. Each member of the family is making sacrifices in their own lives--without complaint
