MIL BACK AT THE NURSING HOME

Friday, January 25, 2013

Well, we tried to bring her home but she arrived back at the home yesterday evening at dinner time. All of the nurses and CNA's were so glad to see her and they immediately got to work taking care of her. It is so the right place for her to be. SHe is in a newer room that has built in cupboards around her bed and more room at the end of the bed for us to sit and visit. And a new flat screen, bigger TV on the wall that works.

I just can't tell you how relieved both my husband and I are at the thought of her being there, being taken care of. I hope she realizes that it is where she needs to be and starts even to like the place a little. She has 25 free days left and after that, they will drain her assets and then go onto medicaid. We have about 2 months worth of money before that happens.

Thank you to all of my friends in sparkland who have read and listened to me as I complained and whined and told the truth about how I felt. THe good part is that my husband now believes that this is what she needs. He had to try and bring her home and see if we could do it.

Yesterday I went back to the doctor as I thought I was going to drown in phlegm. I left with a bag of medicine including an antibiotic and I already feel better. Although, I coughed a bunch last night and this morning and peed my pants. I'm wearing one of MIL's pullups right now. THey come in handy.

Maybe now I can get my life and job back. January was a bust for sure. I did not do any exercising and so the Biggest Loser challenge went by the wayside for the week. Tomorrow there is an exercise session at the gym at 10:45 and I plan to be there. HOpe I don't cough my head off. I've lost 4.7 lbs but now is the hard part. Stay on some sort of nutrition counting to start losing the next 30 pounds. This is the hard part.

    Carol, know that you tried to keep her at home and your dh knows too and he realizes that sometimes what we want is just not possible. I so agree with you. My parents used to say that they did not want to come live with any of us and really did not want any of us to move in with them either. Take care of yourself and get over that "crud" before you do much exercise. ((HUGS)) to all of you.

    You will always know you tried, and you know she is being taken care of. Also, you aren't taking care of her, you just changed the way it is being done. Now take care of yourself also. emoticon

    That is a relief. DH will maybe still be able to take her out to visit for the day when she gets a little better. You can have your house back and get some rest before you get back to normal. And maybe some of MIL's treasures can go into storage?

When you feel better you might like to check out my blogs, I have lost 10 kilos, that is 22 lbs in 18 days. You might win your biggest loser challenge after all!

    I am glad both you and your husband are in agreement. Hopefully you MIL will soon see that is the best place for her too.

Praying the medication will get you back on the mend quickly!
