I haven't mentioned too much about this before, because I've been doing a pretty good job of ignoring/avoiding it in real life, but my grandmother Oma is living with my family now and she's a nearly impossible person to live with. She keeps saying that she wants to go home to her two-story house sixty miles away, even though she can scarcely stand up without assistance. She can't hear unless we shout, and then she gets annoyed with us for shouting at her. She always needs help changing her diapers. She calls everybody but the immediate family 'Olga.' Et cetera et cetera et cetera. It's - I would call it intolerable, but we are tolerating it. Just barely tolerating it, yes. Teetering on the brink of not tolerating it, yes. But I guess the word 'intolerable' can't be applied if it's being tolerated, however tenuously.
Anyway, just thought I should mention that.
