I just woke up at around 3am and then went back to sleep and now I finally wake up completely. Last night I slept late and it was already almost midnight when I slept. A problem arose. It's really a very big problem for me. My sister-in-law called last night. She is my husband's youngest sister. She told me that a staff from OWWA called her and informed her that her long lost brother is now in Cagayan de Oro City and they will bring them to our place for home. However, my ssiter-in-law who is in Lanao del Norte and my husband won't accept him. I really pitied my brother-in-law. To make the story clear, this brother-in-law has been out of our country since the 80s. Then I don't remember the year, we were in Luzon at that time, my husband, me and our 2 sons, my sister and my mother were there too. My husband went to his sister's house in Quezon City while the rest of us were in Cavite at my brother's house. Then my husband came to us and informed us that they had a quarrel there, that was among his siblings. He and her twin sister against their eldest brother. That was it. So there was no more communication between them. Then there was a time that my brother-in-law called his cousin who is living in their ancestral house. He likewise talked to children of my father-in-law's close friend and neighbor. Because they were just wanted my brother-in-law to talk with us, they give him our contact numbers but he refused telling them that there's nothing to talk about. Then no more contact from him anymore. It was obvious that he really did not want to talk to us. Because of the social media, we were in contact and he told me that he will send packages to me. The packages when they arrived were addressed to himself care of to me. My husband did not accept the package instead he let my cousins receive it and these packages are not in the ancestral house. If I was there I would have accepted the packages to keep it for him till he gets home. Now last night came the surprise which tortured to me. That was when my sister-in-law called me because the OWWA staff called her and asked her to have someone to assist him; He's already sick. I just did not talk the matter with my husband, instead my sister in law and me talked for a long time last night. Good for her she is in Quezon City and she can not participate with this problem. I just wait for my husband's decision, is he will accept his brother, I would welcome him at our home. But I understand that my brother in law wanted to stay in the ancestral house, I just don't know if his cousins will accept him. I just hope they will.

Unfortunately, he was not accepted at the ancestral house. I am just waiting for my husband's decision. I'll support him for whatever decision he will make.

@Nawsheen He is really sick. In fact, I have to go the place where he stayed this morning. I have to see his situation and buy the things he needed. This is discreet. I don't want my husband to know about it since he vehemently refused to accept his brother. I'm not doing this as part of their family but because I pitied my brother in law. There is even a catheter attached to him.

I'm sure they will sort this all out when it's important to do so. I can only say good luck.

@kaylachan Yes I got no choice. Just this morning when he knew that it was his sister whom I talked to over the messenger, he was so angry that he left. I had no idea where he went. But my cousin sent a text message to me that he was at their house.

It's not yet okay. As of this moment, my husband still won't accept his brother. Their sister in lanao turned off her mobile. I don't know how to convince my husband. I got a news that her brother is now staying at their uncle's house.
