I use the term "sibling" loosely. My dad has 13 children by at least 8 different women. His oldest daugther (that we know of) has been conveniently calling him a lot more lately and sharing disturbing news with him. It's everything from "I'm about to lose my home." to "My breast cancer has returned." to whatever other dismal woe-is-me type nonsense she'd like to share. This, of course, sends Dad into a tail spin. Last night they had to give him 2 Ativan because he "needed to get to California" to help her out. I don't share many details with these leeches about Dad's condition, especially that he's in hospice, because they will try to bleed him dry, but this needs to STOP. Dad has enough health issues on his plate. I do NOT want him worrying about things he can not control. I don't want to restrict her from talking to Dad. He seems to worship the ground she walks on, but I need her to respect the fact that these conversations only cause more issues. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can handle this? Sidenote: The last time we saw this awful woman was at my brother's funeral five years ago. Guess who had to foot the bill for her travel, before I was appointed POA?!?! She's just an awful human being.
