I am really sorry that I didn't check my post last night. I always do, but Kevin was impatient to get the game started to I just hit the button and walked away without looking. I went to bed after we played a few hands so I didn't see it until later today. I really am sorry for those of you that worried unnecessarily.
So anyway, the case manager is working on different avenues to get a new mattress. She called today and feels our frustration and I am trying to feel confident that it may happen soon.
She did get the reverse osmosis rolling. I talked to the water filtration guy a few times today and it appears the water softener will be here next week sometime. I don't know if I mentioned that San Antonio water is not good for burn patients to shower in. I never knew about this, but I would hazard a guess that Florida water is no better.
And poor Kevin today. His shower stall is just a small one and because he can't get his stitches wet he had to take a bath today. When sitting in his shower, the water just beats down on his head and he can't get his head or face wet. So anyway, I helped him get into the tub, which is one of those garden tubs - really deep - and that went RELATIVELY easy. BUT, getting him back up and out of it - now that was a whole different story. We both struggled and after about 10 minutes of us trying to find a way to do it, I finally just crawled into the tub and basically lifted him out by grabbing him under his arms and around his ribs. Geesh does that boy need to lose some weight.
I so hope that they remove all of his stitches tomorrow when we go to see the doctor. Not sure how many days I can lift him out of that thing.
And the new aide came today. She was a very nice older woman, but I did reiterate that we would prefer a young man. They are going to keep looking for someone in the meantime.
First 2 from the Nov kit!
