MIL lied to DD and told her that DH would live forever.... but he's dying
DH was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer and we sat our kids down to tell them what was going on. *this is the short version of the events*
Well every weekend, we send the kids to grandmas house as it's just the way our family works. MIL knows about the diagnosis and everything that is going on. So apparently, DD 4 asked MIL about daddy dieing. Let's face it, this is a possibility and we teach our kids that our lives on earth are temporary but we don't know how temporary and when we die, we become angles for God. This is just how we do it so please no bashing.
So MIL took it upon herself to tell DD 4 that daddies live forever and that nobody would take her daddy away from her.
