Stupid me, thought my sister would help.
My mom lives in her home and I live there too to keep her happy and healthy. Must be doing something right. She will be 101 years young in two months.
When my niece came to visit last year, her mother (my oldest sister) told her daughter to tell us to spare no expense in getting our mother hearing aids as she would pay for the whole thing if I could get mom to go to a hearing specialist and get hearing aids. I came through with convincing mom to go to a hearing aid place. When she got her hearing aids, the look on her face when she could hear again was priceless!
I let my niece know so her mom could send some money like she promised. Well, my sister (who lives 6000 miles away) called and told mom she had to pay $16,000.00 for her grandson’s college tuition. She has 10 horses to care for and an ailing husband. To pay $7500.00 for mom’s hearing is out of the question.
Stupid me for falling for her words. Imagine how my niece feels. Wish I had deeper pockets. I never planned that my sisters would turn so cold.
