My Mom recently found out that her cancer had progressed to Stage IV. Her doctor referred us to our local Hospice care and they are wonderful. But during these many months of her illness and time in a nursing home, our family members have not been very supportive or helpful. (One in particular has been very negative and critical. NONE of them came to visit or called her on Christmas Day. I still have a good bit of anger about that. My significant other and I were the only visitors she had that day.) Now they know Mom is terminally ill, it's like night and day. All tears, love yous, and if there's anything we can do to help, and so on. While I know we all process the news of a loved one's impending death differently and respond in different ways, I still can't help feeling skeptical after so many months of their indifference and criticism. Did any of you ever experience this? How did you deal with it?
