I am the next to the youngest of 4 children. My sister is the oldest and lives about 8 hours away from my parents. I live 20 min. away from them and try to help them daily. They are in their 80's.My dad had two strokes on Christmas Day. My sister took 3 days to arrive due to parties. She and my mother flit around and pretend my Dad is okay. He is not and has a crisis frequently. Two such crisis situations have occurred during the past two weeks. I called my sister after staying at the hospital with my father by myself on Memorial Day. Nurses told us to expect the worse. I tried to call my sister for 3 days. She was involved in weekend parties and became very upset with me when I finally reached her to say that Dad was not doing as well as before. She called my mother and created a scene. Dad almost died 3 days after I called her. My mother has instructed me to protect my sister because she lives far away. Is it wrong of me to feel the
need for someone to comfort me during tough days?
