I wish to say thank you to all my friends that have prayed and sent out all the heartwarming words about myself and my father this past week. he passed through surgery and now we are awaiting his physical threapy tests to see what all needs to be done as far as aftercare for him and myself. He won't be getting out today and I have no idea when he will either. So it's a wait and see situation. I talked with social services at the hospital about care centers and or nursing homes for the aftercare. Now I have to read through it and maybe make a couple calls and visit a couple for my own personal feelings. Anyhow thanks all for the show of care, love, concern, and friendship. And mostly thanks for the prayers for my whole family during this past week. I won't be on much until after he is home I feel. I have only been responding to a couple discussions and feel a tad guilty. But I know most of you understand this. Thanks again. This show of friendship here has really floored it. I was amazed at the show of support etc. Now I guess I am off to go visit dad once again today and see what the PT results are. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Grandpa Bob, don't feel guilty! You have to take care of your family first! It is a very good idea to do some personal checking of these care facilities. Not all are what they seem. I have seen some real doozies and I wonder how people sleep at night leaving their family members in a place like that. But there are very good ones with very caring staff through social services. It is a great relief to know that your dad is making progress. Thanks for letting us know!

If the aftercare is intense, he may need to be in a nursing home for a little while. I am so pleased that your Dad has improved so much. You should give yourself a rest now. No need to respond to discussions, everryone understands.

He may be eligible for home services so that his care can be given at home rather than to go to an outside source for therapy. Don't feel guilty for attending to your life Bob. Big huggers to you and your family.

Hello! I know you've been very busy and tired this passed few days grandpa bob and the whole myLot community knows that too, so don't you feel guilty if you can't response to many discussions. Taking care and looking after your dad is more important than responding here. Am pretty sure that everybody understands it. Just take your time grandpa bob, have a rest and do your priorities. You don't have to worry as we are all going to be here waiting for your fun discussions and photos. Have a happy and stressful weekend. Mwahugs to your dad. God bless you and your family! *smile* ciao! c",)

If your dad does have to go to a nursing home I would suggest trying to find one that is very close to your home if you can. That is what we did when my grampa had to go into one. The whole situation was much easier just knowing that he was close by and we could stop in several times a day to be with him. It is a tough decision to make but sometimes you just have no choice in the matter when our loved one needs around the clock care and we are just not able to handle it on our own.

Yes a very rough choice. There's one right down the road on the way to getting my wife from work also. About 4 miles from me only. Decent place too. Recomemneded through social services at the hospital also. So that's my first choice. It'll all be covered for 20 days 100 percent throigh his medicaid. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Hi G'pa! Well, sorry for being so rare here due to some personal commitments & engagements. Just learnt about your dad's health conditions. In our past discussions I had better idea about your dad's heart disease. Sorry to see that your family suffered. I wish your dad very best of the coming days and recover sooner. My father also faced a mild heart attack last month and since mother passed away to heavens last year, all of our family was up-set and worried about father. Now he is okay. Thanks for tolerating my boaring response :) C Ya!

My father was in a nursing home briefly afterhe had his back surgery, he called it Afghanistan. Said th epeople were mean and the food was terrible. But they did what needed to be done for him to get better. BTW My father's favorite past time is complaining, so I would take what he said with a grain of salt. So glad Dad is doing good.

Hi Grandpa Bob, You are so very welcome, and so deserving of this support too, as it's wonderful to see how much love, and care you have for your family. Your dad is in very good hands, and is so blessed to have you caring for him. I hope that you can get everything worked out regarding his aftercare, and that he continues to come along, and gets stronger each day. My continued prayers will be with you. Please remember to take care of yourself too.

I hope that you can get these arrangements made soon. I've found it can be hard to get ahold of 'any' medical professionals on a weekend. Good to hear from you, and thanks.
