I'm so unsure of myself right now and also feeling I would be putting Paul in a short term rehab facility so I would have a break not to deal with it all. You see, his last fall 2 weeks ago landed him in the hospital with fractured ribs. He was sent to a rehab. He lasted three days. He was kept in bed a lot because they were afraid of a fall and just not that much therapy. Maybe I didn't give the place a chance, but I caved and signed him out . His home coming wasn't too great. Fell twice getting out of bed cause that damn diaper was soaked and he couldn't just wait for me to come around the bed and help him...Thursday night he spiked a raging fever and he couldn't get his legs to move at all. I called an ambulance and now he's back in the hospital with a UTI. So the doctor is talking a rehab again and Paul doesn't want to go. He said to me that he knew he would be getting worse in a year and why not let him come home. It's been progressing quickly I think too. My thoughts are that his legs are strong now, bladder infection is better and what rehabilitation can they do for him? His problem is with unsteadiness and weakness in the right hand and leg which I also know pt and ot won't help much. He wants to be home. I do and I don't want him home. I hate this.that no therapy could or will help that. Close people around me tell me I'm wrong to have taken him out the first time and now I should have him go in again. Im trying to do the best thing for both of us. Rehab is covered by my health insurance but not to get someone in the house. insurance covers pt and ot in the home too. Should we get a hospital bed? Thanks. I know I'm talking to people that get me.
Beautiful fall day in New Jersey, but too hot.
