    Well, we got her to agree to the skilled nursing facility. The case worker was very helpful. Once she came in and stated the facts, it made it very easy to argue our case and convince her. Thank god!!!!! Now she’ll get some good rehab care before she goes home. So far, so good.

    Thanks! It hasn't even been a week yet and I'm exhausted, lol. Lots of changes I'm having to shoulder. But this is the adjustment period. I'll settle into it. It's going to continue for me once she gets back home. It's a long road ahead, lots of things to take care of. I've always only had to take care of myself in life. Now it's me, and elderly person, two dogs and a house. A whole new paradigm. Lots to do.

    Just try to focus on the moment. Creating a plan is good but at the same time trying to anticipate what's coming around the corner will make you crazy. One day at time.

    Oh, I know, thank you. Just gearing up to work, that's all. Rolling up my sleeves, as it were. I'll deal with all of it as it comes up, one thing and one step at a time.
