The list of this things is growing longer and frustrating beyond end! It is so hard to see him hurting so much for this stuff. I guess it is times like this when I am thankful that she lives so far away and we don't have to deal with her on a regular basis. The thing that worries me a lot is that when things do get worse with the CF, she is not only not going to be a support, but in fact she is going to be a considerable liability.

Husband talked to his mom...
And it did not go well. The back story is that she sent us a horribly insensitive letter saying that she was so glad that we dealt with his CF so she was free to do "her own thing." This was a few weeks ago and the weight of that letter and a lot of other past things that she has said have continued to bother us. I was going to talk to her about it, but then G decided that he wanted to do it. So he decided to do it last night on his way home from work. I wasn't there so I didn't hear it, but he was extremely upset. Apparently she doesn't see how she has done anything wrong. She also reminded him of other things--like when he was in the ICU fighting for his life and she called because "she needed to say her good-byes." Seriously, this woman has no tact whatsoever and just doesn't "get it." All of her comments are so focused on herself--it is all about her needs.
