    Skilled nursing facilities and rehab hospitals can be great - just really watch the meds. I've seen too many whose doctors take it upon themselves to change the medications to match what they have on hand or what they're familiar with. Too often, those doctors are looking at a short-term relationship with the patient and can be dismissive of medications that may have taken months or years to develop as they should. (I have been known to insist upon being there when medications are dispensed to make sure the right ones are given and nothing new added to the mix for someone's convenience.)

    I'm glad we're now talking about Phillip's progress in a good way, now!

    Believe me, I am a veteran of the great med-switch conspiracy thanks for the reminder - I DARE them to try that while I'm upright and breathing!

    I spent several hours with Phillip tonight - he has improved 1,000% in the last 2 days, and is almost his old charming and amiable self - delightful after the past 2 1/2 weeks! He can't wait to get back on the forum and announce his return!

    I'm glad we're now talking about Phillip's progress in a good way, now!

    Woot, woot!!!!!! Wonderful news. But why are you up so early giving it. You need your rest too, girl. Please tell him we are waiting patiently on his return. But don't let him rush it and then relapse. Of course, how could he with such a wonderful and caring spouse?
