The matriarch of the family has asked all of us who are living permanently abroad to prepare to come home to the Phils. by the end of the month.

This is what i am so dreadful about, when we are all being asked to come home and to do it as soon as possible. so my sister and her family from calgary, alberta in canada is coming home, likewise my other brother from new jersey and his family is coming home also, and i am coming home also with my wife. my two boys just started summer school and cannot missed their schedules.

We were all advised that the coming home will give strength to my kid brother and will make both our parents happy to see us all together. my father had a chest pain while he was at the hospital the other day upon seeing my kid brother with all his contraptions attached to him inside the intensive care unit.

There is a round the clock watch that has been given to the rest of the family who are back home. our family doctor is at the hospital everyday, every morning trying to watch and study and confer with the hospital surgeon the progress and the developments of my kid brother. her wife is always there with him and the private nurse and the theraphist is also watching over him. all of the best care and medicine and care money can buy has been accorded to my kid brother. a round the clock nurse is always in attendance for him.

This incident that happened to my youngest brother is the apex of our family's test to be with each other and to be one in spirit and all for my brother. like as i have said, he is too young to suffer this kind of illness and he already suffered so much, both in the children that was born to him and then this dreadful illness.

I will not think that we have abandoned this kid, he has everything that he wants in life, even in the state of married life. among all the siblings, he was the one that is always being cared and being looked after by my mother. his kids goes to the most expensive school and they have their material necessities given to them based on what their needs are.

And so this coming home is making me nervous.i don't want to see my parents in a very lonely state of mind especially my father who had a quadruple bypass.i dont know how can both my parents take this illness of my kid brother with an open mind, since i myself cannot accept it, what more of my parents who are already past their 80's.
