I have no idea where to begin  
Still have no idea what is going on with my mother-in-law.  She went to the doctor on Friday, but hasn't gotten the test results yet.  They were supposed to be ready on Tuesday.  They supposedly called that morning and were told they weren't ready yet.  Did they call back later that day?  No.  So, they called back today, but guess what?  The doctor isn't in today.  So no results for anyone.  I realize that no one wants to hear bad news, but I am really starting to suspect that they know something and aren't saying anything. 

But that isn't the worst of it.  Today the baby had a doctor's appointment for his usual checkup and shots.  Since the Dr.'s office is two minutes from where I work, I usually meet my in laws there.  Well, wouldn't you know that on our way out while I'm making the baby's next appointment, my MIL falls in the waiting room.  I saw the whole thing unfold.  She didn't trip.  She was too weak to make it the couple of steps from the wall she was holding on to over to the seats.  Her whole body was shaking.  The people behind the desk immediately called the doctor back out to look at her, but she played it off like she tripped and just banged up her knee.  I could hear the nurses whispering that they saw that she didn't trip.  Oh, if they only knew the whole story.  What gets me is that both of my in-laws don't seem to have a sense of urgency regarding this whole thing.  That says to me that they know its bad and are waiting for "the right moment" to drop the bomb.  I can't stress enough that there is no right time and that telling us on Saturday or next week isn't going to change things. 

So, now I'm still stuck in limbo waiting to find out if I need to quit or find a part-time job or whatever.  And I find myself feeling very angry towards my in-laws for keeping this from us.  The level of care my son is receiving has drastically declined because of this.  It may sound callous, but I'm thinking like a mom for a moment.  I have a child that has needs and these needs were entrusted to people who are now, not living up to their end.  If this were someone we hired off the street, they would have been gone months ago.  That being said, its also not fair to my in-laws that they have to go through whatever it is they're going through and look after a toddler.

This waiting is driving me fucking insane.

Awe hun *hugs* I wish things were resolved for you. I hate to hear what's going on with your MIL. It sounds bad if she's so weak she can't walk a few steps. I'll keep you in my thoughts. I hope it all works out very soon and also that she'll be ok.

Thanks sweetie. I wish I could say I have some clue as of right now, but I still have no idea if they got the results of the test or not. My husband doesn't want to call them and they didn't want to divulge anything when I got home today. I hate this so much.
