so my friend who is in a nursing home, suffering from a tbi, as making a tremendous effort and has made such improvements. everyone there notices him and all i am doing for him. i have the director of nursing complimenting on it, the supervisors, even his social worker. well i am supposed to take him out this weekend, he wants to get out for the day! i have spent everyday with him except for one day that i missed b/c i was out of town, and still feel guilty about it. well i called his sister, and she has not returned my call in over a week. i emailed her, asking if i could take him out this weekend, well hello it is thursday and still nothing. i know she has a life of her own, but why can't she call? doesn't she want to see her brother happy, and progress? she seems very bitter b/c he really hates her, but he has suffered enough. why punish him for not wanting her in his life? i eventually want to take him home with me and care for him. do i tell her my feelings for him in a letter? she wouldn't understand, she is such a skeptical person? i will not let him down!!!! this is becoming a problem, b/c i tell him i will take him out, but than his sister doesn't respond back to me. i could see if she were making an effort and visiting him, but she has been there twice in the past 6 mo.
