Q: Hi everyone ... Its after 1 am here in the states right now and I just got home. I thought I would give you an update. They are giving mom some stuff to thin her blood (not cuminden? - the other stuff). So ... we will see what happens next. Its up to the powers that be now. I never had control over life ... and I'm not going to ask for it. Thanks to all of you who are sending energy. It means a lot. I'm still standing and not freaking out ... yet. If things get tough ... I know I can come here. You are the best! Thanks again!
A: Well ... So much for that idea ... My sister woke me up at 7:30 this morning to tell me that the blood thinners didn't work. I don't know what's going to happen now. I know that I am going to try and stay functional. I'm going to go and talk to the funeral director locally to find out what needs to be done - should things go bad. I have to plan for anything at this point. Let's see if anyone tells me anything today. My family is known for leaving me out of stuff. I'm not happy with them right now. They are more worried about who's getting the house. Its so sickening ... Sylvia I'm sorry. I believed that famillies pull together when it's important, but when my Nan and then my Pop died people showed their true colours and it wasn't pretty. There are rifts now that won't ever be mended. You have our support even if your family aren't giving you everything you need. Sylvia, I haven't written much, to you or to Ruth, (Yay Ruth! First time I ever rooted for carrots...uh, hmmm, no pun intended LOL), but my heart and thoughts are with you, Sylvia. I, too, have seen what happens when family members die who have stuff - Mom and her brother and sister are on polite, but not close, terms and that's only because Mom abhors a "scene". Aunt Margaret absconded with all Grandma's stuff, stuff meant for me and Mom, too, had our names physically ON them and everything! Mom has made sure my brother and I know exactly what we're getting and why. (He and his wife are getting more than I am, but that's OK, because they've taken care of her - and put up with her, something *I'd* never be able to do! - all these years, so he really does deseve what she's giving him.) My heart and energies go out to you. I think you've handled everything quite efficiently and smartly so far. Too bad hard feelings will still linger, even if it's never YOU that harbors them. Any more it's just crazy, isn't it?
