I started crying today. My wife reminded me to rinse my mouth with salt water. I had a tooth extracted. Silly, but my heart was full. What would I do without my caregivers? My wife, my sons, daughters-in-law, sister, even grandsons. My 4 year old grandson, when we play jungle animals, wants me to be an animal with balance (a snake – can’t fall down). My one year grandson makes sure I have my cane when I go out. When diagnosed with MS I felt like I won a lottery I didn’t buy a ticket for. Caregiving is an act of love. It occurs to me that most chatter about best health doesn’t honor the caregivers. Honoring caregivers – a magic lever of best health – Xmas for caregivers. My thanks to my caregivers – from my heart. How can we better honor the caregivers?
