    My aunt is really sick

    Yes i feel like i'm the wrose person a live. my aunt and i have never seen eye to eye. She is my mother's sister even my mother and her fussed all the time with each other.
    She is the type of person where its her way or no way. If you don't have money you ain't crap and see things only her way and she is always right. She is really a cruel person people in our town and I swear this isn't a lie in no way. They will trun around and walk the other way to avoid her she has even been asked not to come back into stores around here and eating places.
    But right now I feel like the lowest person on this earth.
    she is sick she is having breathing problems just got out of the hosp. a week ago from pnemoina (sp?) She even sent me some pictures of my mother when she was younger some picture of me as a child and some modeling picture of me i had no idea she had. My mothers picture of the lords super (huge picture) My daughter some clothes, shoes, pocket book. Even some wedding picture i didn't know she had but very thankful she did.
    We haven't spoken in a very long time because she can't talk without yelling so i decided it was best just to stay away from her.
    I was told today her doctor told her yesterday she would be lucky to live another year.
    Then tonight they had to rush her back to the e.r she was vomiting blood.
    I so want to talk to her but yet I don't want to fuss with her.
    I want to tell her I love her and i'm sorry she is suffering so.
    but to her i'm the worlds wrose person the only reason she gave me that stuff was because it was mine and she found it and wanted it out of her house. except the clothes,shoe,pocket book.
    I don't really know what i'm going to do as far as talking to her but I do wish you all would say a prayer for her as she isn't over the pnomia (sp?) and she is vomiting blood up.
    please pray for her.
    I so wish we could get alone My mother had six sister and two twin brothers only three sister are left my mother was the youngest of all. I hate to fuss with anyone, but she doesn't believe in me taking my medicine i should be over this illness by now. I shouldn't be drawing my disabley at such a young age. i should be working for a living I really wish i could but don't we all.
    I know this sounds weird asking for a prayer request for someone i can't get alone with but I hate for anyone to suffer so. I do wish she gets better and we can be friends again before something happens to her.

    Since you're not well yourself, you might write her a nice thank you note and send it to her either with someone or by mail.

    I'll say a prayer for her.

    Unhappy Rhonda

    I agree with Donna. Beings you're not sure how this person might treat you in person I think a note of thanks would be nice, drop it off at the hospital where she's at or have Jeff drop it by or if she's home send it to her house. She probably would like to hear from you beings she sent all that stuff to your house, ya know. It's hard to deal with and make amends with someone who has been so difficult in life, I've experienced this first hand with my bio Grandma and by the time I finally worked up enough nerve to go visit her I found she had past away. I'm sorry you're going through this, it's hard to be torn like this and you already have so much to deal with already.
    I will keep both her and you in my prayers. Will you I-M me sometime today so I know how you are. Haven't heard from you in such a long time....

    Rhonda...This is so typical of you. Wanting to do somthing nice for someone who is NOT so nice. You are truly an . I agree with the card idea. It is a great way to acknowledge that you received the items and that you appreciate her sending them to you and your daughter.

    and

    Rhonda,
    I think Donna's suggestion of writing a note would be great. I can tell you from several personal losses that if you can write a note, tell her thank-you and then express your feelings to her, you will feel much better when she dies.

    It is the unresolved stuff that really bothers people after the loss of a loved one.
    How nice of you to want to do that.

    Rhonda,

    I'm sorry about your aunt. No matter how she treats others, you are doing the right thing by asking others to pray for her recovery. We all deserve God's love and mercy, even the very worst of us in the world.

    I like the suggestions of sending a note to let her know you love, to thank her for those items she sent you and to wish her well. Whatever her opinions may be of you, if you feel like you need to tell her these things, then by all means do so in a manner where you feel like you can do it without undue anxiety. You deserve the opportunity to express your love, and probably somewhere down deep inside, she may appreciate hearing it. If not, know that you are making a brave and compassionate gesture. When we truly love others, we can give without necessarily expecting a reciprocal gesture. I see how you extend your love and caring to all of these people on the boards -- complete strangers until we all get acquainted -- so I know you have the generosity of heart to do what you feel is right concerning your aunt.

    Hugs and prayers -- for you and her.

    My aunt mary was admitted back into the hosp. last night due to she was vomiting up blood. For what i have heard she has some type of ucler. I will know more soon when I call my cousin back to check on the report.
    I told my cousin about the idea of writeing her a letter. Linda said she would read it to her when she could go visit her or she would read it to her when she came home. Linda has a cold right now and doesn't need to be around my aunt right now.
    I trust Linda we are like sisters we was raised up together she seem to always be the peace maker in the family.
    The reason Linda said she would read her the letter is because my aunt never learned to read she did go to night school to try to learn but she can't read above a second graders level.
    Please keep praying for her she is doing so poorly.
    Thank you for your support, love and most importantly kind words.
