    (...)

    I'm kind of gathering that I'm going to be the one my siblings turn to right now. I'm so fucking clueless and scared for them and I really just wish I knew what to do for them and my mother. While I never met their dad (there was no reason, he lived on the west coast etc) I still know a fair bit about him and he's my brother and sister's father.

    (...)

    And last weekend when my sibling's father had the opp that led to this, my sister went to see him in the hospital and couldn't even be with him.

    I just don't know what to do at all.


    Ed, there ain't much you can do at times like this other than to be available and listen. They'll grieve and cry and there's nothing you can say or do that will get them over it - but being supportive and patient will go a long way. Good luck, man.

    This is the truth. Just being there, showing you care, is pretty much what you have to do.

    Sad story, Ed. +1 to the notion that the best thing you can do for them is just be there.

    Thanks guys. I've let them both know they can call me whenever, which my sister took advantage of last night about 1AM. It's not a big deal [​IMG]

    I also figure at this point he's still alive, no point in draining myself now. If the worst happens I won't be able to help and if the best happens well there was nothing to worry about. Let's see if I can actually keep that up.

    dude, I am happy this is your problem. lately every time I see that you post on this thread, it is some real catastrophe that dwarfs my petty shit.

    have you considered buying a cab service? Could be cheaper in the long run.
