    @Natalka , you're going through so much right now, but I absolutely agree with @avoncallingu : speak up for yourself...you know you won't get the care you really need in the home you're in now, so either they get off their duffs and situate you in a more practical one, or yes, the option of a nursing home is probably a scary thought, but like Avon said....it's temporary, it'll be a place that you'll continue to receive the care you need. It's not a permanent residence, it's just a stopping off point on your way to your independence. Right?
    I hope that by now your medical team has some clue as to why you're having difficulty walking or moving about at all, for that matter. There has to be something going on, and I hope they can fix whatever that is for you.

    Chin up.....you have a very attentive team around you and they'll do what's best for you, trust that, okay?

    We're still here cheering in your corner, Nat!!!

    It would really help if the home you were going to was a bigger and more appropriate residence for you and your husband. I hope that someone who supports you on that team is working diligently on that.

    Also, if you need to go into a nursing home for now, think of it as a "respite." Remember, your home doesn't have all the lifts and equipment that you currently need until you get stronger. I'm seeing that you are a crucial part of that meeting. Don't forget to speak up for chat you want. Perhaps you could ask if the options could include an extended stay where you are.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Got to get ready for my trip tomorrow. Will chat later.
    Stay safe on your road-trip tomorrow, @avoncallingu...don't do what I did in Michigan one year...the road looked perfectly dry, so I was passing another car (it was a divided highway, I95), and I hit black ice. I took my foot off the accelerator, but it was too late...POOF!!! Right into the wide dividing margin, through all that snow, almost into the oncoming traffic lane!! Thank goodness DH just took the wheel, backed us out, and we were on our way again!! What an adventure!

    Don't trust those highways, Avon...just drive slow, keep to the Granny lanes, and have a safe and productive trip!

    Oh, @Lynn49 - you have just reminded me of a March Break when I went skiing near the Finger Lakes (Had to do with a man-shhhhh) Well the road was completely clear and then I hit a part where snow had blown across the road. Whoosh -into the ditch I went snow up to the hod from underneath.

    I don't remember how it got fixed. That was before cell phones.

    Come to think of it - that was the weekend I broke both thumbs. I guess that relationship was a bust. Nice at the time, though.

    Fifty Dollars is Fifty Dollars

    Morris and his wife Esther went to the state fair every year, and every year Morris would say, "Esther, I'd like to ride in that helicopter".
    Esther always replied, "I know Morris, but that helicopter ride is 50 dollars -- and 50 dollars is 50 dollars".
    One year Esther and Morris went to the fair, and Morris said, "Esther, I'm 85 years old. If I don't ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance."
    Esther replied, "Morris that helicopter is 50 dollars -- and 50 dollars is 50 dollars".
    The pilot overheard the couple and said, "Folks I'll make you a deal. I'll take the both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say a word I won't charge you! But if you say one word, it's 50 dollars."
    Morris and Esther agreed and up they went. The pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was heard. He did his daredevil tricks over and over again, but still not a word. When they landed, the pilot turned to Morris and said, "By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't. I'm impressed!"
    Morris replied, "Well, to tell you the truth, I almost said something when Esther fell out, but you know -- 50 dollars is 50 dollars."

    Thanks so very much for helping me see a different perspective.
    @avoncallingu - hope your trip goes well.

    My day was dull.
    Milan couldn't come because he had an awful migraine.
    Husband came, but just stayed a little while because he wasn't feeling well.

    Hope you all have a lovely evening!

    O.K. to be fair I guess " it's not you it's me " I laugh easily.

    Cleared off the vehicle ( even the roof! ) before 7:30 this morning along with the path and part of the driveway.
    The stunningly white powdery snow was still falling as I toiled away. When I was off to physio about an hour later I had forgotten that I had done it. Brain was not in full functioning mode I guess.
    Was so nice to just hop in and go!

    Nothing too exciting going on here for Family Day....the offspring are still asleep!!!
