My MIL had a heart attack. A mild one due to blockage of the artery and she had hand/arm surgery as well. For what, I don't know. She woke up at 5am with throbbing arm pain and they went to the hospital. They did an EKG... and she had a heart attack. Then she had surgery.They are waiting now for more test results.

I made a post about 2 weeks ago how my MIL has, frankly, been a huge jerk to me. My husband confronted her and told her to apologize or we won't be around. Then 2 weeks later, she has had the heart attack. She hasn't apologized. And they want us over for dinner.

I really don't know how to act. She has avoided my husband and I after boundries were put down. The only reason she is getting a visit is because she had a heart attack. I know I sound not very empathetic. I am. I feel terrible for her. Me feeling bad for her doesn't change our relationship.

What do I do? I am having my husband go over there and double check if she is really up for a visit with me since we weren't talking and a visit with a very busy toddler. My MIL normally gets stressed out because my daughter gets into all her stuff.

TIA.
