Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It's Off To Rehab We Go

Well, for a moment yesterday it looked like they were going to send my mom HOME on Saturday because the two places she picked to do rehab in were full. Lady luck was on our side and she (and her friend) were able to get in the rehab center, Fairmount, at Breckenridge in Willoughby! They will move on Saturday afternoon.

Fairmount Health Center of Breckenridge Village
36855 Ridge Rd
Willoughby, OH 44094
Phone: (440) 942-4342

She is doing well today. She walked several steps around her room and has been allowed to sit up in a chair for a bit. They have taken away her button to self-dose her pain meds and no has to ask for it. She said she misses her little button friend.

She is aware that rehab will be the best place for her for the upcoming week. Her friend, Connie, works in the beauty shop and I have taken the kids there to visit. It is a very nice, clean place. I think her healing will benefit tremendously by having PT's to work with her more often than an at-home health person right off the bat.

Wishing you all a Happy and Safe 4th of July. It is hard to believe we are not having our annual blowout, but with all the construction still going on at the house and the uncertainty of my moms progress it was just not possible this year. Plus we haven't arranged with the city to have the fireworks shot off near our house so we can see them. Ah, the one thing I miss about the Euclid house!
