Good Evening

My brother has finally been transitioned to the nursing home here. It was a long day.

And he can be so mean to us.

Today was something else. Even though three of us have been there with him since this started - he didn't want the doctor to share anything with us. He didn't want to say we were his next of kin for medical issues. He is devious. I really think he thinks we want to scam him.

For years he free loaded off my parents and drank. Even i had given him money. Then he finally applied for his VA disability and was awarded a huge chunk in back pay and over 3K a month in benefits and all of a sudden we were pariahs. yes the PTSD has something to do with it, but my oldest sister said he was always a jerk.

His daughter finally showed up and we let her take over. He only wanted her anyway. Even though I was the one that had gotten the ball rolling. My two sisters that were with me are helpful with other things.

Well at least he is in one place and it is done and that will be it. I will assist as needed but not taking a more active role. One sister gets mad at me because i don't treat him like a child. I hate little small talk type stuff. Lets get this thing done.

oh well, at least i can sleep tonight.
Clem glad your DB is in a safe place. You did what you could and the rest is up to his DD since he prefers her anyway.
