On top of this Tom and I have been trying to clean out her house to get it ready to sell. I am paying her utilities and everything (taxes incuded along with home owner's insurance )since mom has no money left in her bank account. Of course Medicaid will get all the house money so we are trying to sell off the contents by having an estate sale for the stuff inside the house ( I get to keep the money from that and the money I pay out of pocket for her utilities until the house is sold ) but the money for the sale of the house will go to the state.
She has failed in health a lot since last year.
I know a lot of you have gone through the same thing but it is so hard to clean out everything ( Beth, I remember when you did this ) and then remembering how things "used to be " when your parents were healthy. It just makes me cry. So, if I'm absent for awhile , please just say a prayer for Tom and I . And please pray the house sells quickly. That will help my problems so much if it doesn't drag on too long. Medicaid in Ohio requires a house to sell for 80% of the value of the home. So that is my guideline to go by.
ok, Hope everybody is doing well and my pick for the Super Bowl is Kansas City. I did predict that it would be between them and San Francisco so I really don't mind if one or the other wins.
oh, mom broke her ankle last year on my birthday ( Feb 4th ) so I told the doctors she was almost on par for her break this year, just a week or two earlier. Pray for her to get along with her therapy . She hates doing it.
