    Your story is almost the same as mine.  Except my husband served in Vietnam.  Until 2 weeks ago I was also dumping water outside cause the drain was blocked, finally had enough and called Roto Rooter.  They unclogged it, made a cleanout to make it easier to do next time.  Unfortunately, they took most of my Christmas budget to do it.  $245.  But it was worth it.  My back was killing me hauling all that water.  My husband has diabetes, heart disease, kidney failure. Plus he has some kind of as yet undiagnosed skin condition that is causing him to itch which makes him iritable and I have tried every cream in the world to help. Nothing does for long.  He has been to a dermatologist who doesn't seem to know what it is or even care.  Most VA doctors are great, but I have yet to meet a decent dermatologist there.  He also has some kind of dementia, not sure what kind, but has short term memory loss, apathy, depression.  Anti depresants aren't working.  Like you all I do is work to care for him, also my granddaughter who I have been raising since she was 6, plus on and off before that.  She is now 13, has health issues, joints that dislocate easily, scoliosis.  She is a good kid, good student, getting A's and B's.  Hang in there, I believe it is worth it.  Some of us have a mission of caregiving in this world.
