Re: Brother wants to marry his girlfrend and let her make life and death decisions...
How did things go?
I hope your brother realizes this will be better until he is stronger. He has to think about his entire family, and forge ahead, as tough as light is right now.
I can be pretty direct myself without being rude... I might just say something to sis in a kind way that you'd like to talk to your brother for a few minutes. Should you really need her permission? You'd think not, but really, you are siblings!
Two of my three children are married. I couldn't imagine hovering to block another sibling. Granted, none have been this ill.
My daughter- in- law got very sick while pregnant and had to have second trimester surgery on her, not the baby, but in that area. Her mom an I got the play by play and then I passed the info to my mom and daughters. It was a success and baby was fine. The offensive part came out and she did much better. And baby didn't have a clue! Her mom flew down for that and since I can't travel, I sent flowers and chocolates and that was a hit!
I'm on a new med and it makes me feel really weird. Hope all is well, and with the lawyer too!
