Grampa update... and the Wicked Witch of the West

We are at Grampa's right now and the Wicked Witch of the West showed up.

[Sam's sister Becky]

The one who went back to drugs and prostituting when Grampa broke his hip a couple of months ago.

Anyway I came out here to the car to talk to you guys, Sam's sister Lisa went to go get Grampa some ice cream.
Sam is on the phone in the front yard talking to Kris's landlord [we'll chat that later]
Notice how none of us want to be in the same room with her!
When she first showed up, Sam said Grampa got really agitated, his breathing got quicker, and he started moving around more... She seems to bring out the worst in people I swear!
Then Becky started asking questions at Sam
"How many breaths per minute is he having? why are his eyes half shut?"
Finally Sam told her to read the book the hospice people left us... It gives you the signs to look for when someone is dying etc.. Sam said he finally couldn't stand being in the same room with her so he came out side and answered his cell phone...
She makes  me sick... I have been racking my brain trying to find someone to compare her to... so you can get an idea how irritating she is... so here is 2 examples however you need to times these people by 3 on the irritating scale...
 
Example number 1 - Janice Dickinson from [The next top model - show -]
Example number 2 - Ramona on "Real Stories from the New York Housewives" but again... times it times 3...  because those two people are just examples of woman who think they know it all, seen it all, judge everyone and say things for the shock value during normal conversations...
 
Becky's own children want NOTHING to do with her... If they show up, she has to leave! Now that is pretty bad... but she has done this to them her whole life... show up, clean up, never apologize for leaving them the last time, just acts like she is the boss and can do no wrong! A few months later she is just gone one day back to the streets and drugs...
Anyway she is probably coming around to see what she can get when he dies... She literally makes me ill...
 
Well I better get back inside... The Wicked Witch of the West just left and Sam's sister Lisa just came back with some ice cream for Dad...
Thank you all your prayers... It is helping and he is having a much better day today...
 
I'll tell ya more later... just know he is still hanging in there...

Honey I'm so glad that Grampa enjoyed some ice cream today. He's tough as nails. So sorry that Becky showed up to cause problems. Ugghh I hate that Ramona chic on NY Housewives. I hate when people show up like that. My MIL was that way with her inlaws. You don't know how much I wished I had let them leave me everything which is what they wanted to do. Boy that would have really thrown a twist in this divorce wouldn't it have.
Take care and Hugs, Chrissie

I'm so sorry you have to deal with her on top of losing your Grampa. I've taken care of patients who had a family member like that, too. It's a nightmare!! The one that causes problems usually is the one who hasn't spent much time with the patient. So they feel guilty...and they get like she is.
Good luck sweetie. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Love,
Pam xoxox
