Family fretting

Last night I received another call from the parents where they let me know that dad wasn’t feeling well again. He’s been having episodes of dizziness and some chest pain and things like that. I believe he actually suffers from congestive heart failure and has for some time. His doctor had prescribed some medication but sometimes it makes his pulse rate too low. The fact that he’s actually willing to consider going to the hospital means it’s pretty serious. He has my sister on call, fortunately.

Naturally since I’m prone to anxiety, I had a good amount of it last night. I started fretting about what would happen, what I would do, what would happen with mom. Mom would want to eventually come and stay with me, but at the moment there is absolutely no room here. There’s barely room enough for me and the two cats. That and I live on the second floor and she is barely mobile. But she definitely wouldn’t live with the crazy sister-in-law in Texas, and she wouldn’t like living with my sister and BIL and their three manic miniature Schnauzers.

I also started fretting about things like what would you do about their house since they are on a reverse mortgage. I know I have to get dad to send me some details on their financials because frankly I don’t see either of my two siblings taking care of anything.

Hope your Dad is all better soon. I know it's hard not to fret about family health. SG and I have our fair share of it with his family and mine.
