Mom Upset I can't Take Her to the Doctor

My mom is 82 is a chronic hypochondriac. She scheduled a colonoscopy on a day I cannot take off of work, even after I told her no.


Claiming she has to go because she has had stomach pain and can't take it any more. Since my dad died six months ago, she has gone from one illness to another and I have taken her to other procedures.

Neither of my siblings live in town. My mother is in an independent living home that will provide assistant and care for her for the colonoscopy.

They will take her there and come home with her and watch her. She is furious that I have set this care up for her and is disappointed I won't take off work. Is this normal for such expectations that I go with her to everything?
