We have our first family meeting scheduled very soon. My husband is 12 weeks post subdural haematoma. In the acute setting , communication was dire and I am so pleased to actually have a forum where we can discuss all those unanswered questions. My father in law and sister in law have kind of invited themselves to this meeting and I was thinking that it might be a little personal and that I and my husband may prefer it if was just us. I very politely asked my sister in law to give me any questions and I would make notes and let her know afterwards so she doesn’t have to attend. She got really cross with me. We are in our 40s with two children. Do we really need his family at this meeting? They will be supportive but I and my husband don’t feel comfortable baring all in front of them. My husband is very frontal lobe- lacks insight, really poor short term memory, can’t plan, concentrate etc. Communication in tact and will be at the meeting. Please help. I’m about to fall out with them!
