That precious little girl has a million dollar smile, and I am so happy for her and her family that she is in remission.  Kudos to the Bengals for keeping her father on the squad so he had health insurance to help with this crisis.  It's heartwarming to hear some good NFL news these days.

Congratulations on a beautiful healthy daughter.  Enjoy the sleepless nights they don't last as long at this age as they do when the dating starts.  Until then smile...and enjoy.

I've been through this and it's tough.  There are options for home health care, one here is Home Instead.  These home health care providers do as much or as little as you need.  They are expensive but not as expensive as nursing homes.  Often they will send the same aids, so if you want help on Mon, Tues, and Wed.  That's what they will do.  There are also lunch programs available or the health aids will fix easy meals.  Maybe you could do weekends or 2 days a week to defray the expense.  

Assuming your parents own their home and have kept that house in their name, a nursing home will give you up to a year to sell the house and pay the bill.  What is not paid by your parents estate is transferred to Medicaid.  If estate planning was done and the house has not been in your parents name for 5 years then only banking /checking/savings money will go to nursing home and then Medicaid takes over.  I don't know what it is about nursing homes but my mom was the same way and it was difficult but they actually did a much better job than any of the kids, myself included, could have done.  Funny thing about the nursing home......the longer we kept from paying that final bill.....the lower it became.  Good luck it is not an easy decision.

I would bet on the Buckeyes.  I was very sure they were going to win out this year and I'm pretty sure they will do even better next year.  

Never bet on Kentucky...

Have you checked the schools in D2?  They give scholarships too.  From experience my daughter had the choice of swimming for a D2 school or running for a D3, she had a small offer from a D1 which she ignored.  D3's give a lot of aid and grants and will offer a fantastic school.  The D3 wanted her so bad they told her she could swim too.  The difference in aid between the 2 was only about $3000 a year.  She picked swimming.   She ended up with about $15000 in student loans but the grants from the D2 amounted to $28,000 over the 4 years, grant from the D3 was about the same maybe a bit more.  That amount does not included the scholarship she received as a swimmer or academic aid.   FYI:  Don't be afraid to call some of the D2 schools and send the coach your sons bio.  Only school that recruited my daughter at first was the D1, we had to call the other 2 schools.  

Forgot to add she ended up coaching youth group swimming for years.  One of the swimmers she helped is swimming in the state meet this year.  So she enjoyed being a coach as a result of her swimming as well as being an All-American her senior year of college.
