    Mil

    How did the duties of carer descend on your shoulders? This question has interested me for a number of reasons. My wife and I decided long before my MiL became so immobile that if needed she would be moved in with us and we would care for her.
    Hi, What does "Mil" mean?

    It sounds like a family member.

    Thank you!

    It may stand for 'mother-in-law', see http://acronyms.thefreedictionary.com/mother-in-law
