I got to bring my hubby home this evening from the nursing home. I was so happy to get him home so that I don't have to keep running. I have to call the doctor's office to find out what the next course of action is going to be and get some prescription refilled. The nurses wanted to keep him which I can understand because he is easy to take care of. I am to take his sugar away from his diet. They don't understand, you can't give apple, orange and etc juices without it raising his blood sugar. I don't think they are to use to dealing with a diabetic.  The doctor ordered home health and I asked why. If we needed that, then was he really ready to come home as they had said. I think it is just one way of milking the insurance. We aren't going to have them come.
I asked him if he was ready to run a race with his grandsons, he said that not quite. It was the pick me upper that I needed.
I got my money back that I thought I had lost. It was found by who had given it to me. He knew who it belonged to by the way it was folded which made me happy. He is such a jewel because he is one that I can talk to when things aren't going good.
We  had a heat wave today and the snow melted really good today. It made it sloppy and muddy, but at least it was better then we have been having that is for sure. You all have a good day.

It sounds like you are relieved your husband is home. I think he will do better there anyway. My mother was in a nursing home for a short while and we just hated the 'care' she was given. Love can go a long way. I wish you all the best.

Thank you for your comments on my garden. Your brother sounds like the best. How nice to have those fresh veggies brought to you. I hope my garden is a success.

You take care now, my friend!

Praise God Shirley that your hubby is home with you now. I know you are so relieved having him there.
Sounds like the nurses did not know how to deal with a diabetic and that is so scary in our day and age.
You might want to think about the home care just in case you get over whelmed with things. I know you are a sweetheart though and want to do it all yourself.
Love you sweetie your Texas friend
