Caregiver...simple sacrifice

  Defined as a family member or paid helper who regularly looks after a child or a sick, elderly, or disabled person. Good morning everyone.  It has been quite a while since my last post. I’m working on a post a week. That way I can share, and if it grows to more than great.  As you know with the recent loss of Emerson our season in our family has changed. Today I want to shed some light on those of us that have been caregivers.  Now if you read the definition, part of it describes a person taking care of a child. So that means most of us parents are caregivers. I mean that makes complete sense. However for those of us who have had an ill child, Mac or maybe a parent can be given the label of caregiver squared.  When I went out on maternity leave, a week prior to Emerson entering into our lives I was expecting that by the end of the summer I would return back to work. I would have my 12 weeks maternity leave and then get right back on the saddle and get ready to my doctors hat back on.
