I've asked questions here befor about my MIL, who refused rehab after open heart surgery at the end of August. Now, she is in a NH, receiving palliative care. She is refusing food mostly and getting quite weak. My husband, her eldest child, simply refuses to visit or call her. We've been married (I want to say only) 10 years, but you get what I mean, she is not my lifetime MIL, nor is he the person who is the father of my children. Should I insist? Should I DEsist? I've gotten very good advice here. Please let me know what you think I should do, both in the interest of "peace in the family" and long term consequences.
