I'll see how much I can get done on this, but it's not too easy working in the hospital room. There is really no desk-type place to work. After coming home in the late afternoon and having to fix dinner, send emails, phone people, I'm bushed. I often fall asleep in a chair in the evening well before Dad is ready for bed. I'll try to do this in the mornings before we go to the hospital.
Today Dottie and Frank came over and stayed with Dad while the house cleaner Betty was here, and I went over to the rehab place JK facility. I had filled out the form correctly and talked with the administrator and the nurse in charge of evaluation for admissions. Everything is cool except they cannot guarantee that they will have a free bed on the day she is released from the hospital. They suggested having backup places selected. So I went to the 2 nearby that you and I did not get to tour on Saturday, Tom. My list in order of preference is
1) JK ($250/day)
2) OCN & Rehab ($160/day) this is the place with the nice grounds we walked into, Tom. This was rated 5-star by the paper in 2002, whereas JK was only 4-star
3) DBM ($105/day) Tom, this is the place that looked like a former motel. It was much nicer on the inside. The unit mom would be in is a separate building behind that front motel-like building.
4) DH - the zoo-like place - definitely last place.

Gotta get Dad dinner. He's standing here talking to me as I am typing.
