Lack of Communication

For the past two weeks I have been trying to get a hold of my mother. She hasn't replied. Until today. Today I find out that my younger brother has his hand in a cast. Apparently over a week ago, he cut his hand on a saw and did damage to the tendons, nerves and pretty much everything else in his hand.

He had surgery on Friday. Apparently nobody felt the need to take 2 seconds to text me and tell me my brother hurt himself and needed surgery to repair the damage. I'm more than a little annoyed about this. Had I known, I could have been there to support him.

I feel like I failed as his big sister because I wasn't there for him since nobody told me anything.

I am so sorry to hear that. I know exacted why you felt that way. I wish you could have known it earlier.

I agree that your mother should have told you about your brother's accident and operation. Perhaps she didn't tell you because your mother didn't want you to worry a lot.

Perhaps your mother did not want to worry you. You should talk to her about it.
