Yesterday, I declared today to be "kick butt and take names" day. It's not quite nine, yet, and we may be able to go home on Sunday, if everything goes well.

I need the social worker to coordinate the discharge and his admission to the MN facility. Co-driver/caregivers will be arranged by Himself, and possibly The Boy™ or some other brawny types. I can't lift him alone, and I will not endanger both our safety as the only driver. That would be stupid and totally wipe out all the good I've managed so far.

I have to determine what he can take with, and what should be taken out of his apartment, although I am not dealing with the actual place right now. That can wait since there is no problem with leaving it empty, the custodians will look out for it.

I am off to beard the physical therapy people in their den. Wish me luck.

Good luck to you!
And may the PT people have the good sense to help you as much as possible. So, in a way, good luck to them too.

And more good luck!

This is a good time to get some instruction about helping someone who has no strength get up off the floor. Maybe carbonel knows the trick. I just remembered the time my niece and I saw an elderly man collapse when no one else was around. He was (he said) fine, but he was tired and his legs were apparently even more tired. Anyway, we lifted, pulled, pushed and couldn't manage to budge him. Luckly, a woman came along just then, said she was a nurse, placed her hands just so on his upper and lower arm and levered him up without any apparent effort. I've been meaning to find the secret ever since...

I'll try to get them to teach me.
