My daughter is getting married in 4 months. My MIL lives 7 hours away and is dealing with increasing dementia. She cries on the phone about "why won't ( my son) come and get me and bring me to the wedding?" He has 2 brothers, the oldest cut everyone out of his life 4 years ago and the youngest is living in the Land of Denial. My husband will not tell her that it's just not possible. If it were only an issue of transporting her we could work it out, but she's going to need someone with her 24/7. I'm tempted to keep changing the "date" of the wedding because I know it's just a matter of time before she forgets the grandchildren entirely. I realize that seems incredibly cruel, but I don't know what to do if my husband can't bring himself to tell her it's just not possible to get her here. And I refuse to host this wedding by myself. We should be enjoying this time and I'm just a bitchy wreck right now. Anyone else dealt with this situation or something like it?
