This is a personal situation which I am currently in the middle of. My mom is in the hospital with Congen Heart Failure, leaking heart valves, and up
until today, her liver was failing. She is 76, and all the tests are inconclusive as to why her liver is failing. My sister, and I were told by her
Dr. If she makes it through the next few days, we can expect rehab, and then hospice or nursing home, all depending on how she does at rehab.
The problem! My mother had 5 kids prior to marrying my father and having 3 more. I discussed it with my sister, and we both agreed we should call
the other kids. They haven't had a relationship with my mother in years. Some of them over 30 anyways. We felt it was important for them to make
peace with each other.
They were grateful we called them, but my brother is pissed. My sister didn't want one sister there (who it turns out they had a good visit). I
guess she was afraid it would upset my mother.
I am in the middle between my sister and brother, who, I'm guessing due to the severe stress of the situation, change the game plan every other
I guess my ? Is this: Would you have notified the other kids?
