I don't have much to say tonight as Kevin is still in the hospital. He has only called me a few times tonight, but he says he is bored and you can tell he wants to come home. Johnny did go and visit him tonight for a while though, which did help.
I do want to show you guys an article that Mike from the Post Gazette wrote about the caregiver's bill. Apparently it was supposed to be start on Jan 30 and obviously the VA is nowhere near ready to roll it out. I have heard from numerous folks that it will probably be at least another 18-24 months before things go into effect.
It worries me because even with Kevin going into ResCare, I still won't be able to get a job. I can't very well go in and tell a prospective employer that I need 4 days off in March to go to PA, then another 3 weeks the next month and more time in July. I would also need other days off to take Kevin to various doctor's appointments and therapies/events that aren't included up there.
Ah well. I don't want to think about it tonight. Moe surprised me with tickets to Wicked (something I have wanted to see for years!!!!) and we had a WONDERFUL night at the theater. SUPER SHOW!! Let's just focus on that.
Anyway, here are the links to the articles:
