My prayers go out to both of you, Carmen and Lesa!
You both know that both of my parent's have been ill lately. I know how hard this can be, and to have siblings not being supportive of you in such a situation, well, that is just heart breaking!
Big hugs to you both!

Carmen, my sweet friend,
You most cetainly have my prayers, my support, and my love, in this very heartbreaking situation you find yourself within.
It is much the same here with my Mother, but it is a so called ''Caregiver'' that has left her to feel that my brother and I do not care and that he is the only one that does. We cannot find out what she has leagally turned over to him. It was he and his wife that started all of this so many months ago now. I am not sure how these people, can live with their own concious, our your sister with hers. Of course the man's wife has since passed away, which has only given him more control over my Mom because he plays on her emotions that he has no one now but her.
My mother, as you know, had not spoken to me in over a year. Just recently there has been small comunications, but if Norman is around, she will never say the words ''I love you'' at the end of a phone conversation. This morning as I was ending a call to her, he was there, and I got from her ''Me too''
I know your heartbreak, and I know your confusion.
You have my prayers sweetie, and if you ever just need to talk to me, I am only an email away.

I have been dealing with a very painful family situation from which I need relief and peaceful resolution for all. Basically, it is a situation where two sisters having power of attorney over my parents, have understood this position to mean they can take action regarding my parents without including the three of us.
One of them, the youngest, declared to us in an e-mail that she has no siblings and thus ended family ties with three of us.
She's told me in several occations, and my brother as well, that because we're older and raised in another culture while she was raised in the US, she can neither relate nor understand us -- cultural differences being a factor. She wants nothing to do with her ties to Argentina. She however, has power of attorney over my Dad who is in the advanced stages of Altzheimers.
Dad was institutionalized in September of this year, without our knowledge or consent. We would have supported that decision as it was innevitable but both my sisters decided our involvement was not needed.
My other sister has power of attorney over my Mom. Her ability to keep records and control of their money is questionable, and she refuses to provide us with any information regarding finances.
Three of us have been cut off from our parents' lives -- we get neither medical nor financial reports. My heart is torn to shreads -- I don't know what to do. I'm seeing an attorney on Tuesday to see if we can force them to include us at least with information and to not take matters in their own hands beyond what power of attorney entitles them with.
Please pray that all this can be resolved in peace and harmony -- I love my family. Can't help if one of them feels she doesn't belong, but I don't want lose my parents. They could end up in a State institution if financial management is not handled properly. I feel so powerless over this whole thing.
Thank you all,
