Vicky have you tried to call him and ask him what's up? Sometimes our family members just don't get or even like to think that their Mom's are not perfect and healthy. We try to do the best we can, and I do understand what it feels like as a Mom, not to have your kids "really" care about how you are. I have a selfish 32 year old, that hasn't talked to me since my Mom died earlier this year and it really hurts. I really think you need to have a candid talk with him. Tell him you know that it had to be hard for him because you were ill and couldn't enjoy the time with him like you wanted, but it wasn't because you don't care about them, its just that you are very ill right now. I don't think he is understanding how truly ill you really are.
Sending special love and Mom hugs to you! I do understand, if that helps at all.
