I know I have beat this drum before, but since my Alz. Victimized Dad has been found to have a brain tumour the size of a golf ball pressing on his brain, things have become more urgent. the neurologist said he is not a candidate for brain surgery, but if they have no other choice (after they see the MRI, which I had to fight for), the neurologist said they may have no choice. Were this to be the case, he would have a 20% chance of survival. Two years ago, the PCP ordered a MRI but back then my Dad was seeped in negativity and firmly refused to go. We tried everything but he remained in bed with his head under the blankets and wouldn't get up. So, the test didn't get done. Two years later, we're in this pickle. So, due to the fact my Dad cannot string a sentence together, I have asked for an extension on my lease, twenty miles from Dad's LTC facility, in order for Family members to come at their leisure. In the meantime I have been gathering all important belongings and stashing them with friends and neighbors, as I will have to leave here in May, and I don't want to deal with thirty-five years of accumulated stuff. Therefore, the various family members can choose what they want. In addition to that, as the LTC takes all Dad and his wife's pensions, no mortgage payments have been made and the bank will foreclose. So, I found a buyer. We will net enough to pay off the mortgage and a few other outstanding bills around town. That's it.
Well, the emails I have gotten from my sibs are devastating. I thought it was bad when they just remained aloof from it all. Now they are calling me a thief and a liar. I am not particularly well myself, I have been doing this eldercare here for 28 months without help, except from my neighbors and a retired minister. I rented on the water, with lots of land b/c I thought Dad would be happy here. I am stuck here alone, in this big house because Dad became unmanageable, he is a big strong man and he started mixing me up with his wife who gambled all his money away ergo: the Mortgage. He insisted the mortgage was paid out several years ago. The local constabulary advised me to place him. The tumour must be on his happy place in his head, b/c he seems quite happy there.
