Taking Care of Father in Law

My father in law used to live in India with his other son and would visit us from time to time.


Last time he was with us 3 years ago he got very sick, and got hospitalized. He got better,went to India,BECAME OXYGEN DEPENDENT there and we thought he won't be able to travel to United States.

Two years ago he told his brother who was visiting India at that time that he is feeling very good and he wants to visit us in USA and traveled to here in spite of us telling him not to do that.

Within a month of coming here,he got very sick and now his condition is that he can't travel and go back to India.

My husband went ahead and filed green card for him. He is staying with us now and loving every minute of it because my husband makes sure he has all the comforts. He is very demanding too. He wants all the attention and wants my husband constantly on his toes around him.

I feel that even though I never had very good relationship with him, I am forced to take care of him because he tricked us. My husband does a lot of work for him and does not expect too much from me, but our life is affected and I live with constant anger.

I feel he tricked us but I am more angry because we never ever mention this topic also with him, because he is old and disabled.
