19 year son paralyzed vent dependent
Hello again
I wrote a while ago about my son. I have a situation and I'm wondering if there's anyone else who has gone throught this. My son is paralyzed and vent dependent (since 2002) With the help of 40 hours of nursing, I have been caring for him for the last 5 years My situation is that while I have been working full time and caring for my son, my husband has met someone and has filed for divorce. I am absolutely shocked. He was never really around much anyway but now - this is permanent. Does anyone have any advice who may have gone through this? I mean what right does he have to just walk away from all of it? If anyone has any experience in this kind of situation, I'd love to hear from you.
