Reply to "How Do You Deal With Your Threatening Siblings & Siblings Who Will Not Help"

I consider myself a Christian and believe in forgiveness, but I find myself extremely angry at my brother. My Mom has Alzheimer's and she fell and broke her hip in July 1997. I contacted my brother, who lives out of state, to let him know. We spoke several times until Mom was to be released from the Rehab Hospital. He told me he would call me to find out what the doctor's recommendation was for Mom's future care, but to this date, he has never called to inquire about Mom, his Mom too.

Through the family grapevine, I heard he got remarried and they had a child. He did mail me a birth announcement, but never inquired about Mom. Needless to say, I never acknowledged the announcement. I feel so much resentment and anger. Now I need to place Mom in a nursing home, and I feel so guilty and feel like I have so many decisions to make, that the mere mention of my brother makes my blood boil.

Has anyone experienced anything like this? How do I handle my feelings
