My husband got a timeline from the structural engineers today of 6 months to complete repairs on my MIL's house. Then he heard some good news - the relative that is very connected with the VA called to let him know that a bed had just opened at the Veteran's Home - she said that NEVER happens. Doug is going to go tour it tomorrow. The problems may be getting MIL to agree to go, but with her home out of commission for 6 months, she has to go somewhere. She was always very proud of being a veteran, so this might go over better. Keeping fingers crossed.
