She believes that God will heal her and does not believe in modern day medicine. She has not seen a doctor in 46 years (since my DH was born). Despite her religion, she has been smoking since she was a teenager. She's been having difficulties walking from one end of the house to the other because she gets so out of breath. She can't clean house anymore or work in the garden. My FIL said that he thinks she will die within a year. Even if she did have emphysema or cancer she wouldn't go see a doctor.
My DH and I are not Christian Scientists, in fact I was in the medical profession. It's difficult knowing that someone you care about could get help, but doesn't want it. Is there anyone who can give us some insight as to how to deal with this?
