My sister still has not named her newest baby boy yet. I'm sure she will by today though. He was about two weeks early because the chord had wrapped around his poor little neck and he was in a little distress,not enough distress to do damage, thank goodness. He is doing very well and only 30 minutes after being born he got his first meal from my sister.

My sister is well on her way to her goal of having five children. I wonder if any of her children will ever really know who their aunt is and what she is really like. It inspires me to create more so at least they can get a glimpse. It's times like these that I regret living so far away, but then I remember my sister's and parent's narrow view of the world and feel glad to be away.

Damn

Karen is back in the hospital in ICU with lupus attacking her brain and she is loopy again. The nurse said she didn't have any paperwork saying that I was her Medical Advocate so I starting looking into that. She never called the attorney from her divorce that I can tell. I wonder what on earth she did to make her think she took care of all this a month ago when she told me.

I now know that if I didn't sign anything nothing took effect. I wish I had investigated this sooner. Lynn printed out the document for me but Karen can not sign anything until she regains some ludicity.

I'm really scared this might be it and she could never leave the hospital. Her out of touch with reality parents might keep her a vegetable too long and I don't want her daughter getting the satisfaction of finally being the one to say her mother can die. The girl is evil. Someone that cares about her should be making this choice, not a psycho daughter.

When I got to the hospital I was informed by Karen's parents and a nurse that they thought Karen overdosed on her psych meds and somehow caused her to get meningitis type symptoms....? I'm a bit confused by that logic but then I'm not a medical expert, I suppose. Karen told me that she was back in the hospital because she got more pain in her head and spine and had another bad attack. Looks to me that it was caused by the lupus on the brain like before. I'm growing weary of the hospital and their non-communicating staff. I swear you would think they should at least have some sort of medical blog they all check up on per patient since none of them ever bother to look at the damn medical records. Why does every doctor I encounter when in the hospital with Karen think all her problems would be solved if she stopped taking her psych meds? My god, these people are downright obsessed about it. A brain tumor has fucked and continues to fuck with her head...and she takes meds for it. Are these meds really causing every single problem? I think it is much more likely that her lupus is behind her deterioration, thank you very much numbskulls.

I am concerned that Karen continues to suffer from severe confusion and I'm beginning to think it is possible she could mess up on dealing with her multiple complex medications. I think it might be necessary for me to check in on her once a day and arrange her pills for her and possible make sure she eats at least one good meal. She hasn't been eating well lately either. This would be a huge burden on my life and I cringe at the thought of it. I live in Hazel Park and she lives in Auburn Hills. Her parents are out of touch with reality and getting more senile and feeble. They try to care for her but really that are not too great about things that take complexity.

I wonder if I should move closer to her so that driving would not be so much and time would not be as much either. The area she lives in is so much more expensive and I really don't want to have roommates again. I don't want to get rid of my belongings either. Moving in with her is not an option for many reasons. I don't know what to do. All I know is that I just can't stand by and watch her poison herself because of her sickness and confusion.
