In my family dysfunction. My father likely has cancer but won't agree to getting scoped for definitive biopsy. He is very elderly and frail and adamant he will not undergo anesthesia. He also doesn't want my mother and brother to know. His right. My 20 something daughter enjoys having him live at our house. She is wonderful with him as is my husband.
went over to parents house to interview real estate agents. My mother had a large glass bottle that held thousands of pennies. It was smashed and empty. I took a picture of it. The desperation for money to pay brother's bills.
I did send little nephew a cool toy and fancy cupcakes for his birthday. Never got a thank you but I hope they didn't sell the toy. They returned the Christmas gift from Amazon.
My brother texted me last night that when the house is sold he is bringing my mother back to our area and getting her an apartment because he finally realizes an 80 something yr old without a filter and unhinged "has damaged" his boy. So he will dump her here and take off with the money!!
Great thing is that I am sole trustee. My parents this summer wanted money to be parceled out to him. I feel uncomfortable selling the house. It was supposed to happen AFTER their deaths.
thanks for listening.
