Found out yesterday that my dad totaled the car in JUNE....when they were at my Aunt's funeral (when they didn't come to visit us). Dad broke his arm, wrist, and hand....and neglected to mention any of this. There is more to it, but I was getting so angry at how much they were keeping from me (and bro) that I told them I had to get off the phone before I blew a gasket.
My brother and I spoke, and we are going to HAVE to sit down with 'rents and assess the situation. They can't take care of themselves on their own, and we aren't there to make sure they are ok.
Someone send me the strength to not lose it.....
