I am in a tough position. I will try to make this easy to understand:
1. my mother (72) is ill with cancer. However, her main caretaker is her boyfriend, who lives with her....this is her choice
2. my husband has his own medical issues and is about to leave (quit) his job. The stress is just too much for him. He also cannot do physical labor (Boston winter was extremely hard for him....having to shovel the rooftop over 10 times, etc.)
I know that we may have a possiblity to relocate to Florida (where my husband will find a less-stressful job, and the weather will be much kinder for his physical limitations). This option has come much faster than I thought -- most likely next year.
I cannot help but feel so guilty. Guilty leaving Boston and my mom. Any suggestions, anyone been in this type of situation?
PS -- if we do locate, I plan to visit mom on a regular basis (more than 5 x a year).
Thank you so much, I really do appreciate all of your comments and replies
