Yeah, I think it's easier for younger people. My father-in-law is 89 and really does have serious health issues and is frail. It makes it harder to do the therapy. Plus, he is a stubborn old Hillbilly! If someone tells him he has to do something, he resists doing it. It is the same reason a lot of people in Kentucky resist wearing masks during this pandemic. No one is going to tell them what to do, by golly!

Ack. It makes me crazy sometimes. My husband largely overcame his heritage where this was concerned, but most of his family is still that way. Patience!

Thanks for your prayers!

Thanks for the update!

When my Dad had to go to a rehab facility after he broke his foot many years ago, he was eager to do the therapy because he wanted to go home so bad. He did super well in his OT/PT and whenever I visited and talked to the therapists they said how well he was doing. He was so happy to get home to his cat (who has long since died now) and his own bed and the peace of his house!

The last update I had he was buzzing around in his wheelchair, cutting up with the nurses and entertaining everyone; but when it came time for therapy, he would claim he was dizzy and wouldn't do it. He had them all buffaloed until Nina got back. She gave him a good talking to. She told the nurses and the therapy department to MAKE him do it. I haven't heard how it is going since then. He will soon run out of Medicare days, so he had better do it so he can go home!

I called my brother-in-law Martin. He said that Nina told him a couple weeks ago they had a couple suspected cases. They had them strictly isolated, and only certain people were allowed to work with them. I hope they can keep it from spreading. Martin had forgotten about it until I called. So much has happened. Too much to digest in our brains!.

I found out today that there are Covid cases at the facility where Wade was just admitted. Please continue to pray! Those places are like Petri dishes!

Wade is settled in to the nursing home. Hoping he will do his therapy and be back home soon. He is stubborn!

Wade is doing much better. The plan for tomorrow is for him to go to a rehab facility to regain his strength. It looks like he will be able to go to the facility where my sister-in-law works. That will be a huge benefit for him, since they are not allowing any visitors at this time.

Thank you for all your prayers! Glory to God!

My father-in-law Wade has now been in the hospital since about Wednesday. Heart trouble, but he got a pacemaker for that. The pacemaker is working fine, but he collapses or passes out every time they try to get him up.

They are doing blood tests again in the morning. I suggested to my brother-in-law Martin that they check his potassium level as he is also confused. He even forgot about getting the pacemaker. I hope they do it.

He probably needs to go to a rehab facility, but he will resist.

Martin has been staying with him since he was admitted, and they will not allow visitors to change out. Only one for the entire time he is there. I understand, but it is still very frustrating.

Please pray for the whole family. Thanks!
