I received a call this morning about 4;45 from my sister Suzie who has been a regular here for some time and got me started at OS.
She was calling to let me know our mom had fallen yet again at the home she is at and that this time she had broken her neck. My sister has been with mom all night and is tired and I can't get out of work to go help her and I just wanted her to know how much she is appreciated when she gets home and can sit at the computer again.
My sister has been raising us her siblings since she was about 10 I think. She has always been the mom and has given up much to be there for us. I am 2 years younger and then another sister three years younger and two brothers 5 and 6 years younger I think. See I think but Suzie she knows she always knows the right answers, the right thing to do, what to say, how to act. My sister Suzie is an incredible sister and I am proud of her.
She moved up here when her and her husband could have moved anywhere but here to help take care of mom before mom knew she needed taken care of. She was the one mom was always mad at blamed for everything and yet my sister was always there for her taking her to dr visits picking up meds driving her everywhere. Sitting with her at the hospital when needed broken hip, everything, everytime. My sister also sat with our Grandma and Grandpa as they died and was close when our dad died even though he was never a "dad" to any of us.
She is an incredible woman and mother and wife and friend and sister and I know she will be there for our mom in her last days and as mom finally sees her mom again and my son Toddy and will finally be at peace and I couldn't love my sister more for what she has done for this family and for our mother and I just needed her to know that. I LOVE YOU SIS!
