Last night, I got the news that my father-in-law had a heart attack and admitted to the hospital. I saw my husband's face is very sad. I want to entertain, but I do not know what I should do. My husband was very sad, and I do not dare talk to my husband. This morning, my husband went to visit his father. My husband asked me to stay home, because on Monday my child take the test class increases. But, on Sunday, me and my parents, plan to visit my father-in-law.

Hi, my It is sad to hear about your husband's family. Is this the same man who found a new lover who mentioned in your earlier post? Why does come to you forcing your to do be your mother? I know there is a person sick in the fmaily, bu there must be some kind of respect for you. You do not necessaily need to go and visit your father inlaw.

Indeed, my husband often makes me sad, because it has another woman. But, he is my husband. His father was also my father. So, I also feel worried, and will soon be visiting my father-in-law.

You are right, your relationship with your father inlaw should be determined by your husband's fedility. You are making a right descison. I pray that you will be strong in this trying time.

I will say a prayer for your Father-in-Law. I will also pray for your husband and the entire family as everyone is stressed when something unfortunate like this happens. God Bless you all and watch over you. I hope your Father-in-Law makes a complete and speedy recovery. Take special care of yourself and your husband during this time too.

Hi indahfth I am sorry to hear that your father-in-law had a heart attack and I am sorry to hear that your husband would not allow you to visit today. All you can do indahfth is pray for him to be well. This way although you are not there your prayers will be heard. I hope by Sunday he is better and your visit is a pleasant cheerful one for him. Keep praying so he recovers soon.

I think the best thing to do is to let your husband be sad about what happened. I don't you can entertain him at this kind of trying times. Let him deal with the shock of his father's heart attack. You can only stay with him and be sad with him. Maybe you can ease your husband's worry and pain by letting him know that you're there with him and that you love him. I pray for your father-in-law's fast recovery.

You did right to listen to your husband's wishes. Do not try to entertain your husband. Just be there for him. Listen if he wants to talk, and, perhaps, hold his hand. It is nice that your parents will also visit your father-in-law at the hospital.

I am so sorry to hear that your father-in-law has had a heart attack. Your husband must be very sad. I would just be there for him and make it as easy as you can. About all you can do in such situations. Sounds like you have a visit planned. Glad he made it okay. Good luck to your child and the test.

hi, so sad to hear that,thats why i am also afraid because heart attack will come without knowing that it will attack a person,that's why i always told them to do exercise and do diet their self so that they can avoid this heart attack.hope that your father-in-law get well soon.

Yeah, visiting your father in law sounds a good idea, it shows that you care for him. About your husband, just try to be so patience and caring with him try to entertain his needs and ask him hows his dad.

You are an amazing woman and so forgiving and loving too. I read your posts and admire your values. Though you tread on a hard path , still you keep your head high. If God listens it will certainly listen to you. I am sure your father in law will come out of the ordeal hale and hearty and someday your husband too will realize the sacrifice you make for him each day. May God Bless you with his kindness.
