today not much happened. there were a few visitors and that was about it . Karen brought over a few things that were very helpful to Mom a shower chair and bed side toilet. thank you Karen. can't get home health until Mom see another Doctor so he can prescribe it for her rehab. any way that is being worked on. there was one suggestion that is that each of us needs to file a grievance letter to the hospital about the the doctor and how he handled the coding and how he treated Mom while at the hospital,anyway please send Ideas if you have them it would be a big help. And please keep us all in your prayers . thank you Dianna

Another day

Hi all here is the latest update. Date line May 19,2009

well it has been an eventful day at home. Arrived home safe from the nursing home with Mom and got her into bed fine . everything is OK at this point Mom is in some pain and the home health people will be here tomorrow I think to assess the the situation. that is about all we can do at this point and will have to wait and see what they have to say about what it is we need to do. So if you don't know what is going on, here is a very brief run down. One week ago Monday my MOM fell down the front steps and broke her leg. then they sent her to the nursing home were she was to be for 2 weeks. but because of some loop holes in the health care system My parents ins. is not going to pay for any of it. So now we will need to take care of her here, and hope for the best.
So anyway I will update you all later as to how things go .
