And me too.

You know you have all my best but I'm sorry to see you guys go through this. Everyday it seems its something else......and that part I understand. I agree with Sins on the rehab. The "rules" on that end of things are really nuts so find a good caseworker (yeah, there are some) who can navigate all the ins and outs......and there will probably be plenty.

After that disastrous appendectomy last year, I had to be weaned off all the tubes and even had to learn to walk again. The rehab hospital had a really great caseworker who watched out all through the process and took care of stretching things out when the time was running out. The hospital did a great job for us and Linda, the caseworker, made sure as much as possible was covered and that all the bases of home care services/equipment were set up before I went home. After a month in the rehab hospital and three months of home health care to check the open belly wounds and the like, we came out with only $500. out of pocket.

We'll all be following along here and if there is anything we can do, even from this distance, let us know.   Best to both Tom and yourself....Take good care...........
