She's come around, fortunately--she's agreed to pay for it. I think in this case she just doesn't quite grasp that yes, an oral abscess can get pretty serious. She's not normally unreasonable to the degree she was yesterday (like, at ALL--this degree of fuckery is incredibly unusual coming from her), so I honestly have no idea why she was being so awful about it. :/ Possibly because our insurance has changed and she was stressed about that (because what happened re: insurance IS total bullshit), but it doesn't excuse things. She's not abusive, and for the most part is actually a really great mom, but she's kinda questionable when it comes to medical stuff--she's very much a "wait and see" type, in regards to her own health as well. In fairness, I am occasionally a bit of a hypochondriac, but I really don't like her strategies here. It's the one area in which she's honestly pretty shitty.
