The Rollercoaster ride continues. I dunno what sorta doctors these two people are going to, but apparently the reports of the miscarriage were slightly exaggerated. They were exaggerated in such a way as to be totally false.
So the girl is still pregnant. I talked to my brother again last night. When I called him I was resolved to not "lecture" too much. I knew that he had already gotten a lot of that, and I just wanted to try and be more of a friend than an enemy.
I'm not sure if it worked out the way I had planned. The biggest problem is that I just don't believe that Sean understands exactly what he's getting himself into once this kid gets born. I just don't think he has any idea.
At one point he said something like, "I'm just so stressed out right now". To which I replied, "Right now? Geez Sean...Just wait till you actually have to take care of this kid."
I tried to explain to him that right now, he's constantly broke, and barely able to keep himself fed, and soon he'll be responsible for feeding and caring for three people. I tried to explain to him that all the things that he likes to do, he pretty much won't be able to do anymore.
He seemed bummed, and I could tell I was putting him on the defensive...But I think he at least pretended to listen to what I was saying.
I have decided to grace this blog with a new post.
My regular readers (aka my three or four friends who read this) already know that my family was engulfed by some serious drama over the last few days. The short version goes like this:
My brother got his girlfriend pregnant. The girlfriend (who already has one child, and who is not too well liked in some circles) was unwilling to get an abortion and so Sean-DO was suddenly looking down the barrel of fatherhood.
Scary for us all.
The Family gossip machine went into ludicrous speed.
Four of five days later, before the scandal really had time to take off, I got a message on my voice mail from my cousin asking me if I "heard the good news". The good news was that the pregnancy "didn't take" and the girlfriend miscarried.
That's right...A miscarriage was considered "good news" by all.
