I'm taking tomorrow off, I am finally caught up to next Tuesday...the two weeks of no admits because of the flu have caught up to me. I'll be going in Friday to deal with any discharges or admits over the next couple days.
Did he see his happy birthday thread?

Happy Birthday to Shrek

Sounds like a wonderful evening planned

Feeling down today. 2 of my brothers & 2 of my sisters were here last night. We all had alot of fun playing games with alot of good food & fun. Worked on mom's placement to go back home. All were in agreement that she needs physical therapy with 24 hour care. So, after spending everyday with mom for the past 2 weeks they took her back home today to get her admitted to the nursing home, with therapy, temporarily, until she can gain her independence. As we had our differences at times, I am sure missing her now. The house feels so empty without her...

Well, the painters have left. They didn't have the furniture covered well enough. There are little tiny splatters on everything from when they were doing the ceilings. Very fine steel wool will remove it. But I shouldn't have to have more work to do. It will tak me at least a week to get my home back to where it was. Not very happy. I know it can't be easy to paint an entire apartment with all the furniture and belongings there, but they left a heavy bookcase loaded with books in front of the closet door. They also blocked a major outlet with the wrong piece of furniture. Of course, another heavy piece. I will have to remove everything from the bookcase, move it and them reload the stuff in it. That could take me as much as three days to accomplish. It is the bending over to empty and refill the bottom shelf. I get very dizzy when I bend over. Will have to see if Spike can help me.

Tough decision but it sounds like a good one to me. A true assessment of your Mother's abilities needs to be made by folks who don't know her. Sounds odd, but those who dont know her are not biased by emotional ties. Give your Mom a couple of days and then visit when you can. Even Shrek enjoyed his rehab stay.

Be grateful for small favors. Well, Huge, humongous favors. That is to say, it sounds like you and your siblings are in agreement as to her needs. Keep up the good work. Hope the good coordination with your sibs and your mom continues.
