79. Wow
It shocks me that you had catty remarks made about you. I used to be a home health nurse and saw plenty of multigenerational families. I have nothing but respect for that. I understand when sometimes, one needs help or has to send their family to a medical care facility but being made fun of for not doing that is, just, bizarre.
