You may want to have her contact him. I believe his girlfriend said the doc might give a referral after his visit this week.

What facility is he at again? I'll make contact today. Maybe there is prep work or even advice about the current situation.

Ok... made contact. He can't be in better hands once that referral is made. I'll pm you the name and number. It would be best if the request was made... I don't want anyone else to get the case. Please give that info to Bob... and our love. We sure miss him... it'd be nice to get him back posting. For him and us.

Thanks pkrbum, Bob didn't answer relayed to his girlfriend.

Visited with Bob today. He looks good and his spirits were up. I was very pleased to meet 2 other visitors. 

I spoke with Bob's occupational therapist...to make sure his pneumonia was well documented as a reason his therapy was not productive. Also we discussed his wrist and leg splints which are not being applied. She said the wrist splint must be lost....after she left I found it on his table and applied it. It is very important these splints be applied. 

Bob is on Tramadol and Lortab....when given at the same time...it would be very sedating and would interfere with his theraoy.

Thank you for stopping by and reviewing Bob's care. Its going to take a Village to get our Bob back, and everybody has to put some skin in the game. He has to understand that being zapped by drugs is not going to give him quality for the two years of life he probably has, and Pk suggesting a nurse is a huge first step. He cannot be consumed by a system which is often not looking out what is best for elderly patients.....like they are expendable. Thumbs up to all forum members who have been helping Bob......there is a special place in heaven for caregivers.

I was not impressed by the occupational therapist. I did go back and let her know I found his splint and applied it. I also told her that Bob had movement of his fingers at West Florida Rehab.

Everybody has to stay on top of this.......he gets back to being old Bob he can fight this battle, but if they dope him into a profit center, then he will be lost. Thank you for following up. Sometimes medical people have to be challenged and assumptions have to be challenged. I hope he gets a trip home in the next week, and a transition can be planned as to accessibility. Bathroom, toilet, shower or bath, and the entry doors are all going to have to allow him to easily get into the house. A lift system will have to be developed for bathing and if necessary initially rent a hospital bed and set it up as close the the bathroom as possible. Bob has to be lucid in this transition, and has to let people what his vision of his quality of life will be in the next year. This chit is not easy and there is no right answer. Sometimes it just is not possible, but you first have to let him do an assessment which is going to require a home visit for a couple of hours.

Thanks for stopping by, I never saw any splints when I was there. I am trying to get it through his BC case manager the care there is lacking. Maybe he could have made some improvement if he'd had the splints, less drugs and their therapist's gave a shit. As of right now he is scheduled to kicked out Oct 28th and it rests solely on the reporting from them.

Oh must add, I just told his girlfriend an hour or so ago that when the nurses aren't looking to help him in his wheelchair, first lower is bed at that level and then tell them he got in it himself. I believe Dr Lamponi is the doc that oversee's the patients there and to mine and two other's knowledge he has not seen him since he's been there. Guess they depend on the cna's?

P thanks for going beyond your duty as his insurance agent. Your knowledge and common sense are important. I hope the transition plan can be activated so he gets clear of that place ASAP and the 28th is only six days away. He needs to have multiple fall back plans. He cannot be shoehorned as if he only has one choice. My biggest concern is Bob visiting zombie land with the medications, and your observations, and Hallmark's are important.

You guys are awesome! It is amazing to see forum acquaintances gather around another member like this.

The PNJ could do a series of Sunday articles about this group. How we started on their old Pluck forum, migrated here, and are still arguing about politics (as usual), but caring for those of us who are sick, and mourning for those we have lost.

Bob is supposed to be released from the snf and into the general population Nov 1, just like prison lol.

He will be staying out on the way to Perdido but not quite that far at someone's house that can take care of him and also under Hospice with the guy pkr recommended. His girl friend said they were going to set it up so friends can visit and she also said that guy Pkr had set everything up and very helpful. I will let you all know after it happens if all goes as planned. Because of my schedule may not post another update until it does happen.

I just spoke to him too. Everything will be setup and this is what Bob wanted. I feel a great deal of relief. He'll be in great hands. I'll keep up too.

Sounds as if Pkr's referral was invaluable. Glad things are moving along with Bob's approval, and wish him peace and comfort. Will await your later update, ppaca, and thank you once more for all you do.
