Hi everybody, feel really miffed. Stepdad has been in nursing just over 12 months. It was a sudden illness, really upset by it. Been by the side of 'Dad' for over 12 months. We have sorted out nursing home, fantastic, been in hospital for 3 weeks, stayed all night and twice a week visiting at NH. Dad has been a permanent fixture in my life, Stayed at my house every Xmas and Easter. Visited twice a week. Loved my children like his own. Before his illness ( approx 5 years prior) named me as next as kin, executor of will etc.. My Mum and him were together over 25 years. She died approx 17 years ago and since then I have looked after him like my own father. Spending all night at hospital when he was ill etc. Step forward nephew?? Never met him in over 40 years. He has visited nh claiming Dad talks to him, doubt it very much only just recognises me!!! Nh raised concerns. He said I am not blood relative/proper daughter!! So annoyed how dare he. I have been with Dad every step of the way, meeting SS, arranging NH, visiting every week etc. How dare he so very, very annoyed. NH very supportive, don't want to stop visits but really annoyed. Where do these people come from are they expecting a payoff??
