New Update on Gramps

Hey, Y'all,
It is almost 9 p.m. and I am just getting back to the blog. I had a late lunch/early supper around 4:30 this afternoon.

This afternoon, I had the opportunity to speak to the case worker for Gramps and tomorrow they all meet (drs., therapists, psychologist, case workers) and make decisions about what and how to treat patients. They also make a tentative date for release of patients. This is an acute Rehab center, which means they have intensive therapy treatments for the patients. It is rated among the top one percent in the U.S. which means it must be pretty good.

I have had many offers from people to come and help me get Gramps home, but I have accepted the offer of our neice's husband, L.D., to come and help me when he is ready to be discharged. I really appreciate all the kind offers and I love all of you for it.

The clinical psychologist was in Gramps' room interviewing him when I got back from being down the hall using the facility computer this afternoon. She spoke to me briefly and then said she needed to finish the interview without my presence, so I left.

Well, not much shaking here tonight. I expect I will go back and watch a little TV on my personal computer next to my bed. I asked the case worker if it was going to cost me anything to be staying here and she said she would get back to me on that. Hmmmmmm.

Be talkin' to you all soon. That's it tonight from Blabbin' Grammy. Will be checking on Lois tomorrow. Bye for now.

Good Morning Grammy, I hope you had a restful night as well as your husband. Your being there reminds me of myself when my husband had a heart attack in Lake Charles, LA. Everyone there (including us) were getting ready to fly to Central America...(and they all did (except us) I was there in the hospital for nine days with him and didn't know a soul. I know you are tired...try to rest all you can and I hope it won't be too many days 'till you can come home. Love, Clara
