Should I be bothered that FMIL isn't reaching out in times of crisis?

I wouldn’t say anything to put her on the spot.  Give her a chance to offer her support in person.  Maybe she was waiting to say something until she sees you?

I wouldn’t take it personally. She may not feel comfortable giving money or perhaps she may want to talk to you in person.

@Meant2Bee:  She says she hasn’t had a chance to look at it yet, and I think you have to accept that.  Or risk calling her a liar and deal with the follow up from that.

@Meant2Bee:  Oh good, I’m glad she cleared that up!  Also, I’m sending thoughts & well-wishes to your nephew 🙂

@Meant2Bee:  I’d give her a chance to see you in person. However, I wouldn’t be expecting money, nor would I be offended if she didn’t give money. If I were in her shoes, I wouldn’t give money, either. 

 

Edit: I just saw your edit. Regardless, my point still stands. But I’m glad she called you!
