So I’m planning my Son’s first birthday party.we chose to do it Sunday 8/21 so that my boyfriend’s visiting friend can attend. My sister’s response “did you make sure mom had the weekend off” um no I didn’t because even if she is, she can come after. My life doesn’t revolve around her anymore. Too many times did I have to coordinate events around her schedule. But seeing that no one from my family makes an effort to visit me I ALWAYS have to go to them, I’m done bending over backwards for them. The only reason they accept my boyfriend in my life is because of my son. Prior to that they wouldn’t give him the time of day ALL BECAUSE of the fact that he’s 14 years older than me. My mom in the past has accused me of always choosing my boyfriends families over my own. Well maybe that’s because they actually welcome and make me fee like family where as in my own family I’m nothing but a joke and an occasional money lender. …. This party is already causing me anxiety
So allegedly my cousin with the aneurysm was clear to leave the hospital Thursday, BUT was supposed to go to a nursing home. Instead of transporting him via ambulance they allow his friends to bring him, only they don’t. He was so bent on attending the services of our other cousin that he was refusing to go to the nursing home. Since he didn’t go there, he wasn’t able to get the steroids necessary to keep the swelling down, so by the time he was at the wake on Friday, he was deteriorating throughout the day, to the point where we feared he’d collapse dead right then and there or not wake up in the morning. Thinking that our Aunt had Power of Attorney, they were trying to get her to call an ambulance. Turns out she doesn’t have POA, just simply is next of kin, and our cousin was fighting tooth and nail against being taken away. FINALLY someone said enough is enough and called 911. By the time he got to the nursing home he was so bad they sent him back to hospital. Now my mom has been given control of the situation, anything in regards to my cousin has to be run by her or FAMILY only. Should his friends inquire about the status of his condition, they may contact someone from the FAMILY. I just hope not too much damage was done. I really don’t think this family can handle another death at the moment…..
