If that's who I think it is, may I just say how sorry I am?

It is who you think it is, but things are much better here than they were there. My mother looks a lot better, perhaps from just getting out and about and having different kinds of stimulation. And my father is more relaxed. Because of the layout of their split-level in Maryland, my father had to monitor her when he was in the kitchen, because she sometimes forgets that she can't really walk or is just too stubborn to admit as much.

Wow, that's intense on so many levels.

I know. It's actually more dire looking than the reality was. But I really tripped out on the monitoring technology, particularly the fact that I kept thinking it was a small B+W television.

At first that's what I thought it was as well. It looked remarkably similar to the one that I used to watch as a kid -- it was in my bedroom, and more a sign of isolation than anything else. Then, I realized what it was, and the particular combination of the different associations was intense.

Yes. It's like the datedness of the monitor's look corresponds to the condition it's monitoring. In reality, of course, it's a baby monitor put to an "off-label" use.
