Howard, we are in the mist of parental care right now...very similar to your Dad. It is never easy, but you are so right that taking care of yourself has to be at the top of the list. I have to remind myself constantly...so easy to get overwhelmed. So keep taking care so you can do the best you can for Dad!!!

My dad would often get Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) due to the catheter. I came to recognize his symptoms and knew when he was getting a UTI. Sluggish, weakness and his urine would smell and be reddish brown. I discovered D-Mannose after doing a internet search. It causes the bacteria to not be able to cling to the walls of the urinary tract and they get flushed away. I got the powdered form at a health store and put it in his drink or over his food. It would clear up the UTI quickly within a matter of hours usually.
