Good morning all, last weekend my step mum had a heart attack. She is 58, with no other health conditions. She spent 2 nights in hospital and appears to be recovering well. She is a bit of a trooper so says she is fine, only tired. It's difficult to know. Please bear with me now because I really need help and advice with the next part of my story. Unfortunately and coincidentally this week my sister has shared something distressing with the family. The timing is terrible but she desperately needs the support of our dad. It will be devastating for him to hear and so far we are keeping things to ourselves because we don't want to shock and stress our step mum.
Sometimes life throws a series of horrors your way. We thought our step mum's heart attack was as bad as it could get, and then it got worse.
I don't know what to do. Our dad has to know what has happened with my sister but I think we should wait until our step mum is stronger.
What are the implications when you have to tell someone who has had a heart attack something traumatic?
If you got to the bottom of this post then thank you so much.
I would be grateful to hear from you.
