Glad your gramma is settling in. My dad had his 5th back surgery Wednesday and they are going to send him to a rehab center aka nursing home. Hugely traumatic for my mom who associates it with a warehouse where one is sent to die.good luck, chel.
hope things are going ok, Jess. i've been keeping you in my thoughts.
i'm enjoying a weekend just for myself, this time around. i think we'll ahve to go out and rake some leaves today, but my jackass neighbor hasn't done a damn thing about his, yet, so i'll have to hope for winds from the ohter side this week.
gramma is settling in to her new place. she's starting to bitch about things, so we know she's over the initial shock of moving in. so, we're telling her over & over to tell the staff that she didn't get the breakfast she ordered or that lunch was cold. the staff can fix that, not us. but, that's par for the course for her - complain to everyone BUT those who can fix something.... in otherwords, she's fine! ;-)
The hospital social worker does a survey of local places to see who has a bed and a skill level needed. Then we clear it thru my sister who is with a hospital in Chicago and then we try and sell it to my mom. Her inability to function on her own has been spotlighted this week, separate and apart from her usual attention seeking behaviors. My dad will most likely heal; my mom will not get better. None ofus sibs are prepared for what that means on a practical basis I am afraid.She is enormously resistant to any change.
Enough about me- how is teh B&G? Your SIL settling down as a single person yet?
