Cousins on Call Renovation Revealed!

Sweet Ellen, I bought my first house three years ago at the seasoned age of 57. My wonderful husband and I were planning on making it our cozy retirement lair. Sadley, one month after moving in he developed symptoms of A.L.S. or Lou Gerhigs disease. For about a year and a half he was at home and we started renovations to accommodate the inevitable day he would have to live life in a wheelchair and bed. Unfortunately in December of 2012 he had a life threatening bought of pneumonia and received a tracheotomy and was put on a respirator and now must reside permanently in a nursing home. Now my elderly parents will need to move in with me, my daughter and her 3 week old baby. We need to complete the renovations because my 78 year old dad has severe diabetes and will need wheelchair access soon and my 81 year old mom has COPD. God has blessed me with an amazing husband of 19 years and very supportive parents. I just would like to provide a safe and comfortable home for them while I continue to care for my husband and daughter. God bless.
