The Sandwich Generation

I never thought I'd be in a situation that makes me cry as this one does.

I thought that grief for my mother was the worst, but now I'm not so sure.

I have a very elderly aunt.

I thought it was garden-variety, old age senility, but now I think it might really be Alzheimers.

She has no kids of her own. All the decisions are mine now.

It makes me ever more grateful that my own mother passed when all her faculties were still working just fine. She would have hated being in a situation like that of her eldest sister.

Please, God -- show me the way.
