I confess my MIL wants to take the boys for a week or two before they go back to school but I'm not comfortable with it. Usually I don't mind, but over the last couple of years she's been in and out of the hospital. Once for a hysterectomy after finding something like 15 different sized tumors. Then, for surgery on her heart, I don't remember exactly why, and this past year to have her gallbladder removed.
After it all she has become a different person. She wakes up in the middle of the night seeing things and hearing things that aren't there. She is terrified of being by herself, which, I think, is a big reason why she wants the company. She doesn't know why but she lives in fear that something bad could happen. I'm almost 100 percent positive she's depressed, and has almost admitted it to me when we're alone, but denies it in front of other people. We haven't had the best relationship so I'm sure she's assuming I'm just being a *****, but that's really not it at all, because she has always been awesome with the boys.
