What is the like hood we see Jr and Eric indicted next week?


Thank you all for kind words an sympathy.


I am sorry I didn't respond to each and everyone of you. It just got overwhelming. BUT I am extremely grateful and touch and your kindness.

My sister-in-Law who is a lawyer( 1 of my brother's wife--Not hubby's sister as I spoke about in past ) has been amazing and is working the past few days to get my Dad back to Las Vegas from Missouri.

I am not sleeping well. I try and lay in bed or got to sleep in the bed and I just can't I end up falling asleep on the couch watching tv. maybe getting 3 hours. I end up dosing off in the afternoon. I do apologize not doing this sooner.

Gem Milley Slams Matt Gaetz about Woke/Critical Race Theory.

I am so Glad this happened and I wish Milley did this to Trump.

My Dad passed away this afternoon.

For those that have been reading my post.. My Dad was fully vaccinated and still got covid. Please let this post be a warning. Don't let your guard down. Please use mask and social distancing.

Sorry I am on my tablet.

Update on my Dad and covid

This is about my Dad in Missouri (normally lives in las Vegas) at my Step Mother's family farm. Fully Vaccinated but is sick with covid.

This morning we got the good news is Oxygen stat is up in the 90s. he is only on 2 litters of oxygen he is very tired and slept most of the day. I am hopping the worse has passed.

Thank you all for your help.


A warning...Covid and opening up

Let me start by saying My Dad and Step Mother are fully vaccinated. He normally lives in Las Vegas but Step Mom has a family farm in Missouri that they go to a couple times a year.

They happen to be at the Farm and Dad isn't feeling good. They go to an urgent care Dad supposedly get tested and test positive for covid. So what does my "Brilliant" Step mom do takes him back to state farm and start treating him with Over the Counter meds. I find out he is sick on my birthday. She calls to wish me a happy birthday and tells me that Dad tested positive for covid and his pulse Oxygen was 87. I freak I tell her she needs to call an ambulance or get him to the hospital. she goes off on a tangent that last time Dad was sick (non covid issue) she said she thought the EMTs wanted to take my Dad to the Hospital 100 miles a way so they can drive past Lake of the Ozarks to see the girls in bikinis.

I get her focus on my Dad again and she insists she monitoring him thru the night. I hang up with her and text my Sister-in-law my fears and concerns. She and my brother are as worried as I am and have gone rounds Yesterday sister in law(my brother's wife) test me that Dad is in the hospital on Oxygen. Talk to Dad briefly he could barely talk or think.

So please be careful out there Yes the vaccine prevents worse illness or death and yes my Dad is in his 80s with pre-existing conditions but that doesn't mean you still can't get it. The delta/India variant is spreading faster.

I worry we are opening up too soon not enough people vaccinated and a good chance of even more dangerous variant

Be Careful.

Please -- When Trump and Crew are rounded up for arrest this is played over the footage

SIL update

So SIL in hospital with Diabetic Ketoacidosis. Hospital wants to know who would be medically responsible for making her decisions FIL washed his hands basically said call him when she is dead I'll take care of the funeral (my thoughts as I wasn't raised with that attitude I understand tough love but this is ) We had been given the impression that the hospital would set in motion the steps to get him declare incompetent and today they discharged her saying they find her completely competent. They sent her home knowing she was mis-handling her one medication and doesn't have it until her next refill which is 20 days away.

So I started working the phone trying to get guidance or help either getting Mom-in law a restraining order to protect her from SIL or SIL declare incompetent. I called area on aging reported the situation letting them know if Mom was living alone her trailer wouldn't be a complete mess it is. He just throws garbage on the floor and if she or anyone try to clean up she gets angry accuse people of stealing. I explained how SIL intimates Mom and how she can't even talk on the phone without demanding to know all details.

I told her someone is coming to investigate and told her tell him/her everything. How if SIL wasn't living with her you wouldn't be living in the mess and she wouldn't be scared.

SIL came home and now Mom wants me to tell them not to come.

I don't want them to say she can't take care of herself--she can. Once we (hubby and I get the place cleaned up she can keep up and we can help her but now I am worried I really screwed up.

So My neighbor's tree just fell into our back yard.

not the whole tree but a good chunk is covering our back yard. Doesn't appear to hit our house but we can't get out the basement door.

Tried to talk to the neighbors and they are not answering us so left a note and took a bunch of pictures. contacting our home insurance tomorrow. This is the first time we ever had to deal with something like this. any advice or suggestions will be helpful.

UPDATE: thank you all for your responses. I called my home owners insurance and they started a claim. right now where the tree fell it is in the backyard and not in danger of harming anyone. Unfortunately my road is being worked on and closed to non residential traffic so having someone come our and do any removing just yet probably won't happen a quickly as I like.

We need to reform Medical system and competency

Sorry for the long rant.

So some of you may know my journey with Sister in Law (will be known as SIL) and the fact she is type 1 Diabetic and in Renal Failure. She signs herself out AMA every time she goes to the hospital.

Thurs got MRI done on her head she was having grand Mal seizures and the MRI was to determine the damage the EEG indicate. She had trouble walking to the point my husband and to carry her into the mother's home.

Friday heard from the Neurologist. VERY BAD her years of not talking care of her diabetes and her drinking in her 20s ( her co-workers nickname for her -The functional Drunk) Most of her right side of the brain is damage and some of her left side. Doctor indicated she is spiraling downward Her Grand Mals are a side effect of the determination. He indicated if the family wanted to petition the court to declare her incompetent to make her decisions they would provide any paper work we need. Friday SIL was able to walk and went to store with her dad.

This morning at 8:30 in morning get a text and call she needs her med asked her if I could pick it up then take it to her instead of picking her up and taking there. She agree (she can be argumentative at times) I go and the only prescription ready was Diabetic test strips. I called her and told her there was no blood pressure pills or other diabetic medicine. She asked well didn't they give me the complimentary pills. I basically found out instead of talking the 3 DIFFERENT BP pills she is talking 3 pills of 1 blood pressure med 2 or 3 times a day and was admit I told her to do that. went home and got a call from mother in law SIL is throwing up she wants her brother-my husband take her to the hospital and she will not sign out AMA. Long story short blood sugar 700 in Diabetic Ketoacidosis. She agrees to say hubby comes home and to get a call. Hospital has no ICU beds so they discharge me. BS verified she signed out AMA right after husband left. No one picked her up and she sat out side for 5 hours begging for a ride. She started to walk away when she fell Hospital brought her back in she can't walk blood sugar is up to 1100 Hospital is now willing to help find a way to keep her from signing out AMA they are going to work with the family to help get the girl declared mentally incompetent. BUT for the past year and a half they had refused to help us help her because she is claimed she understood she was taking her responsibility for her health.

Best part is that the Step Mother (who is a Karen of the worse order) couldn't wait to run up to the hospital to get the SIL committed or whatever she thought she could do. First of all she is not blood second of all as a supposed paralegal she should have known it wouldn't be that easy. The father does have some money and inherited some money from his mother. It was suppose to be divided by the 3 children and her. Then hubby's younger brother(youngest child) passed away unexpectedly. so now it is 3 ways. I worry she will try to con SIL out of her share if in some crazy way Father in Law passes and SIL is still alive. I was pissed she talked about that.

BUt back to my main point there has to be a point where a hospital should with family help and a person with such a history of AMA and how ill there needs to be a middle ground.
