The Aisles of Walgreens

Worn out, her face showed the toll that being a caregiver for her mother dying of pancreatic cancer has taken.

"You know, there are some aisles in Walgreens I'd rather not frequent, like those for dressing supplies and Depends undergarments.

And yet you know something? I'm at peace with that and wouldn't want it any other way."

Now you know why I married her.

The 'caregiver' needs the love and support of his or her own 'caregiver'...from the gentle tone of your writing I suspect everyone has a lot of both. I wish you peace as you and your family finish this journey.
