Glad it is working out (so far). If it is an consolation (I know it's not) I'm in the same boat this week.
My MIL was supposed to arrive from California on Saturday to help with Erik's first month of Interferon. (daily hospital trips, bad side effects) On Friday she called to let us know that my FIL was sick and that she was going to have to postpone until Wednesday. Now, my FIL has been hospitalized and she may not even come at all. I am trying to scramble and figure out how to manage getting Erik to treatments every afternoon, his neurologist, and his therapist, our couples therapy plus drop/pick my son at day care and his speech therapy appointments, and still make an appearance at my job every day. Oh, and I have to find time to be worried about my FIL, care for my husband who will be going through what has been kindly described to us as hell, care for my son and deal with our two dogs. I'm not even sure if this is all physically possible.
I just got off the phone with my husband and told him to cancel his/our therapy appointments this week. Some things just have to be dropped.
