Now, I am sick! Ughh! This is kinda venty/ranty, and might get long.
Okay, so, about two weeks ago FI’s paternal grandmother (who practically raised him) had breast cancer surgery. I accompanied Fiance and the Future In-Laws to the hospital because I really love and am close to FI’s paternal grandmother. The surgery was supposed to last one hour and we’d be out of the hospital by 11 or 12. So, it was nbd. I have extreme hospital/medical phobias (especially when it comes to dealing with cancer) due to issues in my childhood, so it took a lot for me to be there. Well, we ended up being at the hospital from 8:15 AM until 6 PM. Bascially, all due to my FMIL’s competition to be the best DIL to FI’s grandparents.
Future Mother-In-Law hates her SIL (FFIL’s brother’s wife). I would assume it has something to do with some kind of DIL competitiveness. Future Mother-In-Law was in the family first, and I guess she wants to be the favorite. Well, for some reason, FI’s grandparents chose their other DIL to be in charge of this whole breast cancer ordeal, instead of Future Mother-In-Law. Their other DIL would be taking them to appointments, talking to doctors, making sure they understand what’s going on and all of the options, etc. As soon as Future Mother-In-Law found out about it, she was clearly upset/jealous. She had something negative to say about everything that was going on. Like, “They can’t have her surgery at THAT hospital! If I were involved, I’d insist on having it at _______ hospital!” or, “I can’t believe they’re using THAT specialist, instead of _________!” or, “(FI’s grandma) needs to be on ________ medication, not ________!”
