Taking care of elderly parents presents so many problems to be solved. My grandfather got a serious infection around Christmas, which led to his partner basically calling it quits bc he's been using her as a live-in nurse for many years now. He's kind of an asshole.

As is often the case though, asshole parents are still loved, and now like 5 of his children (out of 9 lol) are scrambling to get him moved across the country, arrange for getting a pacemaker, etc... it's such a goddamn mess.


@Elmkast If it helps, as far as I can tell it is _always_ a shitshow.
