My mother had a op yesterday to remove her gall bladder, and gall stones. Shes been in hospital since sunday.

Now i have have my 14 yr old brother staying with us plus my two kids, ones nearly 7 the other is 12 months old.

Today i got all 3 kids on a bus + a big pram on me own to see her in hospital, My mother going me running around her like a blue ass fly all afternoon, I don't mind doing it as shes poorly, But now everyone is expecting me to go up the hospial every day at lunch time till 4/5pm. I asked my sister who's 17 to do it and ill go up the hospial at night, She bluntly said "NO F'ing way!!"
I don't drive so i have to get buses plus i got all 3 kids to look after which aint a easy task.

While im getting buses there wiv 3 kids, My mum is paying my sisters to get a taxi there to see her.... i think its a bit out of order! Plus i don't get no thanks for looking after her son and feeding him etc etc.

How can i tell my mother + family that i cannot manage this everyday?
Im doing my best.. but i know that my sister will be slagging me off that i dont do nothing then me mum will agree,

I really dunno what to do! And im so stressed with it all...

Sorry 4 moaning too much
