I'm Writing this Tread for a Couple of Reasons, and I Hope I Explain it Correctly. My Brother had a Fall One Month Ago, (He's 51 I Believe) and Hurt His Knee. Before this Happened He had been Losing a lot of Weight, and would not go to See a Dr., or even let My Mom check His Blood Sugar. He was Rushed to the Hospital Last Night because His Skin Color had changed to Yellow, and He hadn't Eaten in Days. They Found Out Late Last Night after a Battery of Tests that He has Cancer, and He May Lose His Leg, My Father Informed Me that they will know More Today, they are not Sure how far this has Gone through His System. My Parents need Strength to get through this, and My Brother and His Family are going to need all the Help they can from the Good Lord in the Coming Days. Now to the Point, and I Hope You All on Here don't Judge Me too Harshly, or think Less of Me. This Brother of Mine is the Oldest, the One who Moved into Half of My Parents Home for 6mos. 18 Years ago and Never Left. We have not Spoken for Over 6 Years, He actually (and this is not anything but the Truth) Raised His Kids to not even think of Me as Family, and is without a Doubt and Proven to be the Black Sheep of the Family and has Cause My Parents Many Years of Heart-Ache and Pain. My Other Brother John is coming Home from Va., and taking My Parents to the Hospital Today,and My Mom's Staying Overnight. Dad Asked if John went Home Tomorrow if I would Take Him to See My Brother and Pickup My Mom, and I Told Him anything that Mom and Dad Need I will be there. My Brother Lives Less than 1/4 of a Mile from Me, and has Never Graced My Door through All of My Spinal and Ear Issues, and never even asked How I was doing to My Parents. I'm not going to See Him, I'm not a Hypocrite, I May have some Deep Primal Concern for Him as My Brother, but have Lost All Respect and Feelings for Him due to the Way He has Lived His Life, and what He has Done to Me. So they Need Prayers, and Please if You think I'm Wrong Tell Me, but Please keep in Mind that it Takes One He** of a Lot for Me to Write Someone Off, and He gave Me much More than One He**of a Lot! So Please Pray for Them, and I Hope He is able to Come Home Safe and Healthy for My Parents Sake! Sorry so Long, I just wanted to Explain Every Aspect of this, so You can See the Full View! Thanks!!
