Uh, yeah, mine too. My mom didn't even miss softball games. And when I was older and had to go to urgent care for a bad cold or something, she'd offer to go with if she wasn't working, because she didn't want me to wait alone.<quoted text>
Wait, what? I'm 44.5 and my mom would be there for even a routine surgery such as your SIL had.
Perspective. It changes over time. I had/have pretty darn good parents.
