She Won’t Pay For Her Mom’s Surgery Even Though She Can Afford It

A Reddit user shared their story of their estranged mother trying to reconnect so that she could have her surgery paid for.

Broken Family Ties The original poster (OP) said that she lost her father when she was young and a few months after his death, her mom married a new guy. The new guy already had two teenage boys and didn’t want to raise OP because he never wanted daughters.

OP’s stepfather was wealthy and would spoil her mother and brother, but never OP. Her mother didn’t do anything for her either, she came to visit once a month and didn’t call on Christmas or New Year’s.

Her Mom’s Surgery

She graduated with a degree in computer science and landed a great job with an even greater salary. In the time since, OP got a better job with a better salary and was able to help her aunt and uncle renovate their house.

OP said she had a soft heart so she agreed and let up with her mom. When they met up, her mom hugged her, kissed her on the cheek, and told her she missed her.

She was currently living on a pension from her ex husband and has developed serious heart problems. She asked if OP would pay for the surgery she needed, which was quite expensive. OP refused and said she wouldn’t feel good about it.

When OP brought it up with her aunt, her aunt said that ultimately it was her decision, but that she had plenty of money to pay for it, and it wouldn’t affect her financially.
