However, my brothers are not among their ranks. I have two living brothers (2 died so I'm giving them a pass on this). One of my brothers will have absolutely nothing to do with my mom. I mean nothing. And after begging my other brother (yes, begging) he takes my mom for 7 hours a week, IF it does not conflict with his plans and IF he is feeling well. Don't get me wrong, I am grateful for those 7 hours. But, who takes her when I am sick? Who cares for her if I have plans? That last sentence made me laugh... me? Have plans? Anyway, I am whining about this because my brother, the self-proclaimed Saint for helping me, announced today that he doesn't know how I do it 24/6. Yes, his 7 hour stint that he does when there is nothing conflicting, counts as a full day of care. I never knew that the 24 part of 24/7 meant "or any part there of."
