About Susan

Everyone deserves to feel needed, it is a wonderful feeling. I wasnt able to have children which left me with alot of caring and nurturing to give away. When I moved in my parents home to help them, it was the happiest I have ever been in my life. My mother has Macular Degeneration and it is quite advanced and my father has congestive heart failure and kidney and was being admitted into the er at least once a month for 13 months. I changed his diet and his heart starting functioning at over 50% capacity. Normal is 65% (I think). My mother was due to have some bladder surgery and shortly before my father was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. That was about 4 yrs ago. I love doing in home caregiver and take very seriously. My dad had bladder cancer a few times and a few years ago started wearing a catheter because he could not urinate. I was determined to keep his dignity (his a retired preacher) and independence as long I could. He didnt like me having to change his bag morning and evening and I could tell it humilated him. So I searched and searched for a answer and found it in the Rusch Belly Bag. His urologist and never seen one before and infact I have introduced this to numerous medical staff. He leaves it on 24 hrs a day and wears like a fanny pack. I designed some underwear and other items to make his life easier. I developed a little systems to organized and manage his meds. I researched numours options to increase my parents income and found a VA Pension
