On Thursday, my grandmother calls my mom to announce that she has scheduled her surgery to have her other knee replaced later this month. Some how, something triggered a fight. The hospital that my grandmother had the first knee replacement, was horrible. Not much in the way of physical therapy and they kept her for 7 days. She was loaded with pain pills. She has always had a problem with the bottle and since she couldn't drink her booze, she wasn't going to refuse pain pills. After the 5th day, my mom said that grandmother was really out of it and couldn't follow the simplest conversation and was it necessary to be on that dose of pain meds for this long. After that, they discharged her to Mt. Alverna's for rehab. Nothing but whining, complaining and tantrums. The food wasn't good enough, they didn't have the bennies she wanted (cable, etc). My mother said that this wasn't a resort, she was there for rehab. Now two years later, she is going with the same surgeon and same hospital and wants the same rehab place. Mom reminded her about what happened the last time at Mt. Alverna's and she wasn't going to get the rehab she really needs. She doesn't want to go to the rehab where athletes go when they need rehab. Grandma had to be reminded about the rehab places that she has been before and she really didn't get better. Her response was, it wasn't so bad the last time. I think she is afraid that the therapists won't be tolerant of her shenanigans and she will really have to work at therapy for it to work.
