told her I was getting her in at the nursing home/ rehab place here by me. She had heard about a certain nurse telling the residents about the diaper thing and she said they had to address that and that was un-acceptable. She also said she was sorry they didn't move her to another room after I had repeatedy complained about it. I was originally told she couldn't go there to the nursing home I have her in right now because it wasn't in her insurance plan. Well, THAT was a lie because when I called them to inquire they said they did take her insurance !! I think the Emergency room co-ordinator and the hospital have some kind of kick-back for sending all the people to this certain place. So I got her transferred and she's happy there and rehab is going well. We are taking it one day at a time. I don't know how things are going to turn out but if they say she is able to go home she will probably go home even though it worries me her being alone while Mark is working all evening. I may have to go and stay with her overnights for awhile just to moniter her progress. They will probably give her rehab and bathing help again for awhile and then it will be back to me. It all depends on when her rehab is over that we can make that determination about her going home again. if not I will have to start the Medicaid process to keep her there at the nursing home. She still owns her home so I know they will take that if she goes on Medicaid. I've got a lot of thinking to do. It's not going to be an easy decision but it's got to be what's best for her. Around Christmas she told me she wouldn't be upset with me if I had to put her in a nursing home and now she's saying she can't wait to go home and hugg her cat. So I don't know what to do. My dad was a veteran and I've heard they have widow's help so I will have to look into what I can get for her.
