As the man's mother had "a habit of making plans" for her son's life she insisted that he moved out of his girlfriend's apartment and come home. She believed that he should find a new job and it'd be easier to save money when he's home.

When the mother understood that her son hesitates about his decision she informed the couple was "probably going to die soon" and she needed her son by her side.

During that visit, the toxic mother "had been dramatically preparing her will" and told that she was suddenly “dreadfully ill” (according to her intuition).
