Never thought that Mother would "do" rehab.
But, she is doing great. She lived alone up until the very last day, that she could. Falls sent her to the hospital for a 2 week stay and she was transferred to a rehab facility.
My sister and I do not live in the same state as she does, so a grandson stepped in and did the paper work. So, our emotions were not a consideration.
This very stubborn woman (and many times hateful) is actually being made to bathe, get dressed, exercise and go to the dining room.
Yesterday, the facility transported her to the doctor and she had a great time. She had refused seeing a doctor for a decade.
She is still weak and needs lifted from bed, but she is so much better than when she was home, sitting in a chair and not eating well at all.
So, my message is "You just never know." We would have sworn she would have hired someone to drive her home, by now.
