Blood is thicker than water. But I was very professional, she was very rude, This was on October 4th, and her sister would not acknowledge me.
I was as polite as I could be, and she was outside, asking all the nurses what I really did there, they must have been very honest, because she came back to me the next day and apologized, and did not realize the hours and impact I had on Suzanne's life. Yes the sister that lived 12 miles away and never visited until 2 days before she passed on.
The sister invited me to a FAMILY ONLY get together and stated that i was the only non family member invited because of my love and dedication to her sister.
Yes, blood may be thicker than water, but I believe when you are a good, honest person, the reality is, the blood is under a lot of stress when the sister is dying and they had not spoken for years.
I was very pleased, honored, and then to find out both my husband and I were in the will, just was to me a very peaceful ending!
Now, to do it over again, just a different family different situations.
Wish me luck.
