Sometimes it really sucks being considered the smart/computer savy/educated one in the family.

If I wasn't, it would mean that I woudn't have to read the medical reports of my 85 year old Great Uncle. I wouldn't have to look into his face and hold his hand and give him the news that he had some sort of stroke in the past. Then watch him as he hands me a perscription and goes "what does this mean" and I look and see the smart funny man I knew vanishing.

It sucked.

Here's hoping that he was drunk enough that maybe he won't remember. I guess it's better getting that kind of news from family.

Oh, sweetie, how awful. I am so sorry. *hugs*

If you ever need an ear to rant it, I've got a couple handy....

Yes, better to get that from a relative than a stranger ... but not a nice job for the relative.

Well, I would think so -- there are lots of good medical sites these days, and with a little information you can come up with some pretty accurate guesses.
