Gym, library, and store this morning. I did not leave until late morning for Winston. Bob’s case manager said he might be transferred to the rehab facility we chose late this afternoon. As things turned out, we could not get everything worked out for today so it will be at least Monday before he goes. It is a facility in Winston so that Frances and Al can check on him when I can’t be there. He still has the trach collar and the feeding tube but they will take him with those issues.

    Yah ! Another step in a positive direction.

    If you walk in the front door of the “skilled nursing facility” and smell urine, leave. One of my friends conducted an inspection of 60+ facilities for her Alzheimer mother ten years ago. Her analysis was if the facility smelled like urine, there were other problems.

    We have had my father-in-law in “rehab” for almost four years now. The first facility in Carrollton was next to the hospital he spent a month in. And it smelled like urine. The second facility in Addison was nice but too expensive and too far away from my SIL.

    The third facility in Lewisville was cheaper, $5,100/month, and urine smell free. And closer to his girlfriend and my SIL. Winner ! The cost is now $5,400/month but, that is still good.

    The sad thing is that my FIL will never move back home. He has continued deteriorating and cannot feel anything below the high waist anymore. And a 6’2″ and 300+ lbs, we cannot take take of him.
