I need to accept the fact that cancer has not changed my FIL and that my BILs are hypocrites. I need to accept that fact that I cannot change either of those facts. I need to accept that what I believe is normal, human responses to familial illness is not necessarily normal to everyone.
I come from a very close knit, almost to the point of old-fashioned, family. When my sister became ill, Knight and I automatically knew that as soon as she was medically able, she (and her animals) would move into our house. I learned at an early age that that is what people do, they take care of family.
BILs haven't even called.
