(((hugs)))) Your stepbrother sounds really toxic. Good riddance to him. Focus on your dad, I hope his surgery goes well tomorrow! You sound like a great daughter, just keep being who you are, that’s all you can do. Good for you for standing up to your stepbrother, you can’t enable him and his behaviour. He needs to learn a lesson. More ((hugs)) because you definitely need them. I’ll be sending happy thoughts to you and your family tomorrow!

Wow.  I’m sorry you have to deal with your crazy brother on top of everything.  Can’t believe after everything he could be so selffish and mean to you guys.  Forget him, time to focus on your dad.  Hope everything goes well tomorrow and a speedy recovery.

Sorry you are going through so much right now, with such a A hole as a brother.  You might try al anon since it sounds like a lot of this stems from his drug/alcohol abuse problems.  Al anon is for family members who deal with these issues, and it can be very validating to go and hear that what your brother is doing is not unique, but a sign of his addiction.

He may be over his actual drug abuse, but he still manipulates like an addict. 

I hope you can find some support to help you get through this.

I’m sorry : ( I hope things with your Dad go smoothly. My Dad is also in poor health and we don’t think he will be able to walk me down the aisle, so I feel your pain.

I would just ignore your brother. It doesn’t sound like he’s the kind of person anyone needs to be around right now. He will only do more harm than good. Don’t give him any more fuel for the fire, basically.

Ugh, I’m so sorry you’re dealing with all this.  Your step-bro sounds like he’s a major stress-causer and that sucks.  I can totally relate to you about being daddy’s little girl and having to watch your aging parents go through health problems (my dad’s had a heart attack, too).  It’s so scary.  Hang in there and I’m wishing you and your family all the best and praying for your dad.  πŸ™‚

I’m so glad the surgery went well.  πŸ™‚  My future father in law had bladder surgery a couple of months ago to get rid of some polyps in his bladder… everything went fine with his as well and he was back home the next day, though later had to return to the hospital.

Advise your dad to stay as long as necessary and rest at the hospital.  If his is anything like my father in law’s, he should be able to walk you down the aisle no problem.  πŸ™‚

I think you are right to focus on your dad right now. I want to tell you, my dad had cancer and went through a similar surgery. It’s been a few years now and he is doing great. It did take a while to recover but once he got used to it, he is still my dad and can basically do all the same things as before. I will keep him im my thoughts for a quick recovery!
