I am 70, take care of mom who is in a wheelchair most of the time. I have bone on bone in both thumbs and after reading all the posts am scared out of my wits. I have dealt with a lot of pain, but I have reached my limit. Not sure how I am going to do this. My daughter wants me to come to her house, but is not able to take care of mom because everyone works. I was going to wait until she passed to have this done, but just don't think I can wait. Not sure what I would like to hear from you all as posters. I also take care of 3 acres, mowing and raking and flower beds, and koi pods, as well as working part time. I am really nervous and scared. I would appreciate any and all encouragements. Thanks,Karen
