I'm not sure what to think.
The kids came home today saying that grandma is no longer taking her epilepsy medication and is only eating a fridge full of Jell-O, and that they witnessed her having a seizure (I'm not sure if it was this weekend or last weekend.) It scared them.
Allow me to be speculative...
Two things then: Did he quit his job to take care of his mom? If so, why was that the option when Jamie is supposedly a "healthcare worker" and "worked in convalescent homes?" Not that I believe anything that the Succubus has to say about where she's been, but David isn't exactly a nurturer.
Furthermore, nurturing an adult while not nurturing your children?
More dysfunction in the already dysfunctional environment?
The other thing is this: What the hell are the kids witnessing over there? As much as death and illness are a part of life, how traumatizing will it be for them to continue to see the demise of their grandmother? Speculating of course that she's not well and is indeed on her way out.
But why are the kids even privy to what's going on with this woman's information? Shit, when my dad had cancer I was told he'd eaten a furry pork chop.
David imitates what he grew up seeing. Sick mom, dad who works all the time. I'm fairly healthy, but I was kept off of bank accounts and off of car registrations and out of work therefore being kept "helpless." And the health of his new girlfriend is sub par. More of the reenactment of the only type of family life that he knows.
Now mom is sick, let's drop everything.
Or, you know, something else. This is all speculation based off of my kids telling me they're freaked out that gramma's having seizures and can't take her medicine.
If that's not going to fucking warp them...
