Raising Your Parents and His......

I dont know if you remember the post I did on "Don't bite the hand that feeds you" . . . Well my friend T. is now having migrains, it's her mother-in-law that was in the hospital. Let me tell you a little about T. she and her husband have been trying for years to have another baby, and she has just had her 5th miscarriage. So now they are starting with the paperwork for Adoption (we're very excited.). Okay her mom cannot read, so she has to be there alot for her, especially with any Dr. appointments, or anything that has to with filling out forms,her dad just lost his job, so now she feels it's up to her to help out in any way possible. Well like I said her mother-in-law is in the hospital..And it doesn't look good, So now her father-in-law is calling her daily at work, to have her make his appointments, and help him figure out his bills. She's running in circles, doing everything for her parents, and her husbands parents, she raising one 3 1/2 year old Boy. and tring to adopt another (which has just told me, they have put on hold). I'm thinking that she may need to lay down some rules to her father-in-law now, before she is expected to raise him should anything happen with his wife. . . She feels it's up to her to help in any way. But she has to focus on her own family, and her own health too right?What do you think? Does she keep her mouth shut and keep raising everyone? Or does she speak up and release some stress?
