bnrmom Posted January 28, 2012 Share Posted January 28, 2012 I've got to get through this without sending the nasty email. I'm trying to get through this without telling my sister that she is no longer welcome in my life and never contact me again. I've posted before about the long history with her. My mom had hip surgery 3 weeks ago. The past two weeks my sister has been to see her once. She never called her. I've been there every single day, running errands, going crazy busy to have her taken care of. My sister's response to why she can't do anything? "I'm busy." My mom calls her and tries to get her to do the most basic things, and it's 3 rounds of arguing. My mom asked her to pick up her mail and get her some bottled water, and the text my sister sent? "You get your water or your mail, not both. Pick one." I'm not kidding. My mom lives with me, and came home last night from nursing care. She is still vomiting from the pain meds, can't get to the kitchen because her room and bathroom is downstairs and she can't use stairs yet, and still needs help with dressing and getting food and everything else. Dh and I made plans over a month ago to have dinner with some friends tonight (with the kids). I didn't want my mom left alone so she asked my sister if she would come tonight. Nope, she's busy. Then my mom asked if she would at least drop some food off for her in the afternoon before her plans. My sister argued with her through 3 rounds of phone calls about how inconvenient this was for her, when finally my mom yelled at her about not being able to deal with this right now, and hung up on her. My sister texted her and said "You make demands of me and then hang up on me? I'm not bringing you any food. Make other arrangements." I've canceled my plans. I'm typing this so that I don't type the email I really want to send. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
