Where do I start I married the oldest of 9, because my husband is my Carer he is home so we get to run around after my DMIL any way for years she has been having GIDDY HEADS as she called them. Would she go to a GP not in your life for the last 3 years she has been baby sitting for one of my SIL'S. I found out by accident she was really blacking out there was no giddy in it at all. Now could I make a GP'S appointment no "I need to look after such and such" that was until she took a turn in fron of a DGD who had never seen one and she called a ambulance and that led to a ER visit. Everything seemed fine
Come along time I got her to the GP she has had high blood pressure for at least 9 years that was what was causing the blackouts, and the last turn was probably a mini stroke the GP told us.
What is my DMIL going to do at 5am on Monday morning? Go to look after her DGD because if the mother does not work they can not eat SURE. Her husband has a good job and a day care place is there for the little girl my DIL will be looking after the child if they could ever bear to send her.
This is the same DD who is going overseas on holiday for 3 weeks at Christmas.
Why not listen to those in the family who are worried about my MIL instead of letting MONEY be their GOD.
They own their home so that is not a problem. If they told myMIL to look after her health instead of just using her 5 days a week maybe she would be receiving the care she needs and we would not get frantic phone calls saying she is in hospital.
Sorry it is so long but this really annoys me.
