Prior to that she suffered vomiting for months, however at no point did the husband actually see the vomit. In the past she has had epilepsy, back injury, pulmonary embolism, asthma, anorexia, and many more ailments, allergies, addition to painkillers, and more, none of which could be substantiated.

The mother remained in a private room for 2 weeks while the baby was in NICU because her wound pain level was an 8 and the scar kept getting infected (it still is). Occasionally they would move the baby back in with her but then when she would report the breathing problem they would move her back to NICU. Of course during those 2 weeks we were so worried about the baby, but the parents didn't really seemed to be. The would just say that she's a little premature and that thay is why she was there. That did not make sense because she was a term baby. Again, this is all par the course with them. It's just never a normal situation.

If anything, he praises her for being up every night with the baby and giving it her all and seems convinced that her ailments (and eventual cures) are all legitimate. It's so hard to believe that he is so blind to what is so clear even to a stranger. I think that he can be very narcissistic sometimes and competitive and perhaps doesn't like anyone putting chinks in his armor, for lack of a better term. That'e the only explanation I can come up with.

However, just from personal experience of having a sadistic mother with MSBP, I can tell you that I have realized that what they call "duping delight" is an equally important factor in many cases. "Duping delight" is something which is related to sociopathy where the individual gets a thrill and a feeling of power just from fooling others. Fooling doctors (who our society looks upon as very intelligent people worthy of lots of respect), fooling friends, fooling spouses. From looking at my own situation growing up with my mother, I can see that she "delighted" also in fooling my father and of simultaneously instilling terror in him (that nagging feeling in the back of his mind that she was harming his kids).
