missyk Posted April 22, 2007 Share Posted April 22, 2007 I know it's not only my family...I KNOW it's not, but right now it feels like we must be the only ones that have ever gone through this. First..Mom "flipped out" last night and DEMANDED to be taken home. It was 11 o'clock at night...and when Ralph told her she'd have to wait until morning before they decided anything (over the phone) she called the police in the city where the hospice is and told them she was being held against her will. THEN she called ME!! The policeman who responded was nice enough, stayed with her there until Ralph got there and they worked it out and all that. Ralph was terribly embarassed and I told him not to be...I'm sure it's not the first call of the type they've gotten from there. I know when I worked at the nursing home we had residents use their room phones the same way. *Sighs* She woke this morning at 6am still demanding to go home...so Ralph brought her home. She's still, however, terribly upset with him for giving her "the run around". If that's not bad enough, we had a heck of a blow-up at the "family gathering" that followed my sister's graduation ceremony with her master's degree that was at 10am this morning. She called me yesterday, the day before, and told me that it was today. Then all of that happened with Mom and I was up most of the night. Top it all off with still trying to recover from the intestinal stuff that was going on with me and I was BEAT. I overslept. I missed the ceremony. My sister's boyfriend and I haven't seen eye-to-eye for...well...forever. Today when they got up to Mom's house (I was up there already helping to get mom settled in) I attempted to appologize to my sister for missing the ceremony and her boyfriend interrupted me to call me "pathetic". My brother (that big dude in the picture with Mom down there ) was standing there when he said it to me and held me back 'cause I was going to stuff my Pepsi bottle down his throat. Big bro sent me to cool off with a, "I'M gonna take care of this NOW." and called her boyfriend out to have a little discussion. Turns out that my sister's boyfriend thinks that my sister is the only of we three kids that's attempting to "better herself" and that my brother and I are losers. (Jim hasn't worked as long as I've known him...Becky works full time and has gotten her degree at the same time). Apparently my missing her graduation because of all that's going on in life OTHER than that was enough for her to decide to wash her hands of me. And my brother missing her daughter's birthday in December was enough for her to decide that he's worthless, too. The LAST thing we needed today was for him to open his mouth and start s**t...and he did it anyway. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...I'm SO frustrated at all of this!!! Sorry this is so long and drawn out...I just had to blow it off and this is as good a place to do it as any. Thanks You all are great!
