Lunch with one of my sisters and my dad, then off to the hospital to see mom and to have the family conference meeting.
Results? We now have to look into a respite room for mom and tomorrow I'll be trying to set up tours of 2 homes in the area. AND there is a very, very short waiting list at the nursing home closest to my parents' home.
So, after I dropped my dad and sister off tonight (they were going out for supper), I went to this nursing home. And ... it's nice! Homey, small, warm, large pond which attracts waterbirds in the warmer seasons and the residents can sit out on the deck in summer (they put a big awning up). There is a resident cat there too (that's something we haven't seen at the other homes). So, I'll be phoning this place tomorrow too, to see if they will give us a tour on Friday.
Lots going on, but we are slowly but surely moving in the right direction I think.
Thank you to all who have sent positive thoughts and prayers out for mom and for us as we deal with all this. Please continue to do so if you're able... my mom has an infection in her heel which is very painful. They have started her on antibiotics today so sure hope this intense pain dissipates soon - extra prayers never, ever go amiss!
Blessings to all!
