      keep praying for him and her patience,,, bless her heart for being his caretaker,, that is love! most folks may want to walk away from it all,,, but we need to relax him, you know the cruel words are not really meant, anger can really take over a mans pride,, he's not upset at anyone,, just "WHY HIM" syndrome. I was there once and i'm a mom,, but figured it out! and cancer saved my life and soul believe it or not! lets start by nice calming teas, and classical music and give him space. and in the mean time, you ask yourself, how would you feel if that was you in his place? :(

      try slipping your father-in-law 10mg of Lexapro in his food or drink everyday. It may improve the situation. Also, she can go to support groups and he need not know about it, this can be of great benefit to her.

      I agree with Gibba, but I wonder if there are brain mets involved? Doesn't matter really, as a caregiver/spouse I can relate to your MIL, but I do look at mine and tell him you are asking for a good beating or something to that effect and the horse a** stops and shuts up for the rest of the day. I do wonder, because I look crazy enough or he knows he deserves it.

      At the same time I also tell him that when this is over does he want me grateful he is gone, or does he want me to remember him fondly?
