I just found out that my dad has been diagnosed with cancer.I'm an only child living in another part of the world.Do you think I should go to India now to be with my mother?Please help me make a decision.My husband does not have a good relationship with them..in fact he hates them.So I am not going to get any help from him at all. The pros of the situation: 1.the doctor says he needs to undergo radiation for one month and that it's 100 percent curable. 2. My dad is otherwise healthy and young(only 64) 3.Lot's of support from family and friends. The cons for me: 1. I will have to probably leave my job as I will not get leave for a month,and you know how the job situation is nowadays especially for a 40 year old. 2. My son is preparing for his GCSE this year and he needs my help. 3.No help and support from my husband at all...in fact he said they were lying to make me go to India. Please help me ..I am torn between my duties as a child and as a mother and wife.I do not know what I should do..give up job and family here to be with my parents at this time if their need..or wait and see if situations become better.
