I Don't Think Those Rehab Folks Are Crazy About Me!

October 16, 2010
It's a bit gray and windy here with very cool temperatures. I was so hoping for what we used to call "Indian Summer" weather to start about now, but it's not looking that way so far. The rose bush outside my window is dancing about in the breeze, and every now and then it gives a sharp jerk. That tells me that the wind is a bit choppy out there.
I just called Moo, but it's bit early for him so I'll call back in another hour or so. He cannot hold the phone yet so I have to call the nurses' station so that someone can go into his room and get the phone for him. I can do this.
I was in with him yesterday when all the "rehab" teams came in to visit him. Pain management, rehab program, dietary, etc. All was well except with the rehab folks. They tried to bamboozle him into agreeing to go to a rehab facility for a few weeks. Whatever he decides is okay with me, but I want him to know exactly where is he going and for what.
I've worked in many of these facilities, and they are just glorified nursing homes. They promise you four hours of physical therapy a day for six days a week, but I have never known it to happen. Gosh, I wonder why that rehab team was not so thrilled for me to be there!
We left the hospital (Eddie and me) and came straight home so that I could take Tootsie to the hospital. While I was visiting with Moo, Tootsie had attempted to eat a little bit for Audrey, but just could not hold it down. On top of that, the diarrhea set in and she was becoming dehydrated. Three hundred dollars later, she was feeling just a tad bit better. Thank God I have a job.
Right now Audrey is in the house cooking breakfast for everyone. Biscuits, sausage and gravy. It's a regular Southern breakfast where she lives. So pretty soon, the kitchen will be filled with good smells and hungry guys.
Today, I have another QP freebie for you. This one was such a lot of fun to work on, so I hope you can use it. Now it's time for me to get dressed and maybe have a bit of breakfast with everybody. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a great day.
Hugs, Edna B.

lol- it's good that the rehab guys are not able to fool you.Hope he is making some progress gradually.And poor Tootsie feels something is not right, I think. Animals sense a lot more than we give them credit for."Head up and keep strong" - I'm always being told , and I'm passing that on to you now-hugs Snowy

I can understnad why the rehab guys are not thrilled with you. You know too much about it! But if Moo should need all this, are you able to give him that help at home? It would be a difficult task for you. Just let's hope that Artie makes some progress without having to go into such a rehab!!
Oh and then you have now all the worries about Tootsie too! Life isn;t being kind to you at the moment.
It's all on your shoulders to keep strong and get Artie and Tootsie in one way or the other a bit motivated.
Not the easiest job in the world.
But it just is like that. Have courage, girl.
