Don B, 2/12/2013 - 10:54pm "What a family
I called Mom at my Brother's this afternoon to see about going over to visit her tomorrow afternoon. She has been staying there recovering after heart problems. She said that my Brother and Sister-in-law asked her to leave and find a place of here own. She's been staying in their bedroom on the first floor to avoid the stairs.
She's moving to assisted living here in Tulsa, and she doesn't sound happy about it. She had been living in her own home in Arkansas for 50 years and doesn't want to leave it. I told her that I would support her whatever she decided, then found out that it wasn't all her decision. If I had what they had, I'd put in an elevator, or at least a chair lift, and let her stay.
Trying to cheer her up a little, I pointed out how many years she could pay the rent with the money she has in banks. And she said, "Oh, I hope I don't live that long." I know the feeling. It came for me when I was a small child and found out how little the other parent wanted me.
But my Brother likes to prove he's in charge and rolls right over people no matter what. He's given me a month to get my things out of her house so they can sell it. The gas for one trip would cost me just about all the extra I could afford in one month. I do hope he gets over his testosterone poisoning, but it appears to be terminal. Not that I would do anything - I can resist temptation.
But for him to make Mom feel that low - what a mensch. All heart. What kind of god wants people to treat each other this way? "
