So my sister, who basically excommunicated my wife and I from her family, because we didn't drive 4 hours for every single one of her kids birthdays, is in the hospital with either a pulmonary embolism, or a really bad lung infection. Not sure which yet.
My mother just called me to tell me this. The problem is I was just kind of like, "uh huh" "ok" It didn't really faze me. I kind of don't care too much.
I mean, my sister basically uses her kids as pawns against my wife and I, makes completely unrealistic demands of us, (she expects us to show up for every birthday, every year. Her kids birthdays are now in march, april, july and September. I can't afford to make that trip that many times a year). She sends back gifts we try to send my nephews, and doesn't even give them to them. I tried calling and making amends once, and she didn't answer the phone. Texted me the next day saying that that wasn't a good time to talk. And I haven't hear back from her since.
Would I be a complete asshole if I just don't give a shit?
