    I'm thankful his anger isn't just directed at you, and that it is reassuring to know that.

    I'm so sorry he's in so much pain :(  Are they treating it appropriately ?

    Yes, YOU need to be the one making the decision about whether he comes home right away, or goes to a rehab facility, because you are the only one who knows what you can handle as far as his care goes.

    Excellent that you have the sources of information you need to appropriately investigate the rehab facilities. That information is so important, and that it's public is so important.

    YAY for the helpful medication that is letting you get rest and is easing your pain.

    One step at a time ...

           Much Love, Many Hugs, Strength, and Peace,

        I would start a conversation with the hospital's social worker. Or do they have one ? The patient advocate might also be a good person to speak with about this.

        Explain your situation and that you are looking for a rehab facility should you decide that you won't be able to handle his care at home just yet.

        I know it's tough, Honey ! I really wish I was there to help with the advocacy and research part, to take some of the strain off you.
