Here is the scoop:
DH decided he is not going to tell his mother about the tumor returning until she returns from vacation. I find this rather horrible and, as a mother, would be terribly hurt. Plus, he has already told his dad and they live in the same SMALL town. What is she going to do if someone comes up to her and tells her sorry about her son when she gets back?
She calls tonite and asks about the Dr appt. I tell her the truth prefacing that Devin should probably tell her but he is not there. She gets mad at me and tells me I have ruined her vacation. I should have waited until she returns. I am typing and getting mad again. What?!? How can a woman be so self centered that she would not want to know about her sons cancer? Was I wrong? So now DH is mad at me, I am mad at him and furious with my evil MIL and MIL is mad at me. Duke will be such fun since she is going with us. I just want to yell at someone.
Was I wrong? This is not a dig toward anyone at the board-just at her. The woman has never, ever worked a day in her life. Her other children are teenagers and she spends her days shopping and horseback riding. My aunt said her life was a vacation and I have to agree. I just think it is very self centered of her. Maybe she was in shock but still..how hurtful. I would want to know regardless of where I was if it were my son. Damn, I could be at the UN giving a presentation and you could interrupt me with the news.
UGH!!!! Was I wrong? I need validation.
