More prayer requests from me,please. My mom's cancer is in her liver, and her tumor marker number has risen again. I'm scared to lose my mom. Then, my MIL fell and my BIL let her lay in the floor all night before he decided to call an ambulance. She had a brain bleed that required surgery, and now her personality has changed and she is in a rehab for now. To top all this off, the same BIL has been taking her money from her checking account and in order for my MIL to qualify for Medicaid, my husband,as power of attorney, must file a police report about the money. If we don't she goes automatically to private pay which is $5749 per month! I am torn between Mom and caring for MIL, and trying to help my husband, and so, so tired. Please keep my husband Brad and me in your prayers. Thank you. Cuties are the best.

Thank you. Things are getting sticky with brother in law. He's realized that the gravy train is over now and is lashing out.

So hard to hear this. Just baffling how someone could treat their mother this way. Prayers for Brad and you and your mother-in-law. Prayers for your brother-in-law too, that he will see the error of his ways and make a change.

Thank you. I am having worries being torn about whether to press charges or not. Are we being vengeful and should we just let God be in charge of that? My brother-in-law knows how to really play his game and prey on others' good intentions, and my mother-in-law falls for it every time. I don't want my anger to play into it. I want what's right .

I just read this Jennifer - and I am sorry you all have to go through this. We are away from home right now with a family situation not all that far from yours. When I read your words, "a user and a taker" so matches up with a niece of ours. Trying to understand why someone thinks they can go through life on someone else dime, is beyond me. Your MIL, your husband and you are in my prayers. Hugs, Laura

It is beyond comprehension to me, and from several people in the nursing and rehab as well as the sheriff investigator, happens all too often.

He needs to stand on his own two feet! He is a taker, and who knows what he has talked her into since her Alzheimers diagnosis.

It's made us just sick to realize what his neglect has cost her. She is the nicest person.

So sorry you have so much on your plate right now, elder abuse is a real problem. Take care of yourself first so you will be able to help those you love. Make the most of every moment you have with your Mom.

In talking with the rehab people, I found out that it happens way more than we could have ever realized. How sad that is.

So sorry you have all of this weighing you down, maybe a police report is what your BIL needs to wake him up and realise what he has done to his mother. Will keep you all in my thoughts. Marian

He might squirm to find out possible jail time too! It's such a mess.

Thank you. My husband's brother is one of those who has skated through life using others. And my husband won't let him use their mother any more.

Prayers for your strength and wisdom.
Your BIL needs a good wake-up call. The police report might be the best thing to happen to him. Very sad situation and I am so sorry about your mom.

I would personally like to beat him! It's gonna be a hard and uncomfortable road from now on in our dealings with him but we have to do what is right.

I am speechless. How can someone leave a human being laying on the floor all night. You most certainly have a full plate and prayers are needed. I understand how you feel. Sometimes difficult times seem to multiply before things get better. Hugs to you and prayers for everybody

thank you. It's hard, especially for my husband to stand up against his brother. But we have to do what is right and best for his mom.
