Bilby, my heart and prayers go out to you as well. I went through this with my Mom 13 years ago. Take good care of yourself while you are taking care of her. We are here for you. I have personally experienced the fact that the love and caring from DC'ers is endless and true.

Our hotel has one washer and dryer for guests to use. I just washed a load of clothes and then went down to put them in the dryer (I have another load or two to do but we are going to meet Tattrat in about an hour). I put my money in and pressed "Start." Nothing. I hurried up to the front desk (opposite end of the hotel) and let her know. She called the maintenance guy who got there just after I did. He asked if I put money in. He pushed the thing in again and pressed start. Nothing. He just kept saying that I needed to go get $1.50 from the front desk to see if it would start. I suggested that maybe a breaker just needed to be flipped, and he said he didn't know anything about that. I am so frustrated. I now have a load of wet clothes piled on the bathroom sink and counter because I don't have time to fool with them. I don't know anything about electricity, but I do know that if something isn't getting any power at all, the first thing you should do it check the source of power, not just throw more money into it.
