My daddy, Richard McWilliams, was admitted to the hospital with covid on Saturday, December 26. My brother had been helping while Daddy was sick, running errands, helping with mom, etc., but he was getting worn out. Our very dear friend Lisa came over and we were going to take care of Mama in shifts - my brother during the day and Lisa and I at night. Then my brother got covid, and it became Lisa and me 24 hours a day. It takes both of us to take care of her - lifting her to put her in the wheelchair, to help her in the bathroom, everything. I can not figure out how Daddy was doing this by himself - and still preaching as well!
My brother and I spoke with the social worker at the hospital, and while Daddy is improving right on schedule, they are very concerned about letting him come home, because all he talks about is coming home to take care of Mama. Thankfully we could tell her we were already working on it!
We are applying for aid and attendance through the VA. If it is approved, it will take months. So in the meantime we still need help in paying someone to come help Mama during the day. I spent a great deal of my money today purchasing medical equipment that will hopefully allow Mama - and in turn her caregivers - to sleep through the night. Daddy isn't going to be able to do ANYTHING for at least a month after getting home. So there is laundry and housework that will need to be done. There will be additional medical supplies needed long term for Mama. I'm trying to figure everything out with insurance, but I can't wait for the time insurance takes because of the immediate need. 
Many of you have asked what you could do to help, or you wished you were closer so you could help. This would be the biggest help right now - getting a caregiver for Mama during the day, and having the medical equipment for at night. This is what Daddy will need long term. He can't go back to doing this. He is an incredible man, capable of a lot, but he is 80 years old, and I can't let him do this anymore.
