"Nature is a damp, inconvenient sort of place where birds and animals wander about uncooked."
from Speedy Death
After reading her blog, I find this mother tacky to say the least. I have every sympathy for her and her child, but hers is the only behavior that has been out of the line.
Not saying this mother is, but just in general terms, having terminal illness does not automatically make a person or their family angels; egotistical or other not so nice people and their family may get sick too. And when they do, their ego can manifest through their behaviors and sometimes blogs. Maybe that's their way of dealing with their situations and I know most of us try to give sick people as much benefit of doubt as possible, but there also has to be a bottom line.
