Big Hugs to All!

A hug, a big big hug, to you! Here's hoping you have a wonderful time with family this coming week, and an equally wonderful time with friends, too. Mom has been relocated to a nursing home for rehab. Once the PT and OT assess her, we will know how long she stays. Her roommate seems nice, but Mom prefers privacy and does not like to talk much and likes to have the TV on all day and night, and there is only one TV. So we may have her moved to a private suite which will cost out-of-pocket. We are taking it day-by-day. My Florida trip is on hold, a decision will be made on Dec 30th which gives us another 9 days to see how mom is faring. I could use a week of golf right about now, but I can get it in February, as well. As my big sister says, "So where's the lemonade? Aren't we supposed to have lemonade with all these lemons?" I liked that one.

Karen, I am sorry that your life has gotten more complicated. However yu have an excellent attitude. I hope your mother gets along well. Do you think this is temporary?? I have had my son and 2 sisters in nursing home, however they were in a country home, and still cost plenty. I am wishing you well and the best of luck.

I hope your Mom does well in rehab. Having a room mate in a nursing facility can get on a persons nerves. Hopefully you can go on your Fl. trip. Hugs, Helen

Hugs, Beth
