Under 65

Today, we has been informed that Ada was excepted to stay at American Village Senior Community located at 2026 E.54 th St. Ardis and I went over to see the facility. Surrounded by the senior citizens age over 65, Ada will be the only resident age under 65. The nursing home staffs are excited to have Ada. It is going to be quite a challenge for them as well as for us. Since Ada was denied by several facilities before due to her age, we quickly accepted it. She will have a private room across from the nursing unit. I can stay with her at all time. We are allowed to decorate her room any way we like. We have more than 900 cranes now, may be we can hang all of them there. They promise to take good care of her.
We will be moving there tomorrow morning.
Hugs

I am very good friends with the personnel at the Nursing Home Ada is going to. I promise they will take very good care of her.

My heart goes out to Ada and all of her family and friends. I will pray for her and ask my church to do the same. God bless you.

My dear Ponsawan,
I'm glad another hurdle has been overcome. Ada has a good place to stay for her recovery. It's heartening to know that people there already know about Ada and will take good care of her. It sounds like a small miracle.
More cranes will be coming soon. You will have more than 999 birds. Let me get back to fold some more...
Still pray for Ada and you every day.

I am glad to hear that Ardis is right beside you. You two have done so well. Congratulations.

Ada and you will enchant all the residents and care-takers there. They need you as much as you do need them. I look forward to seeing your decoration for Ada's new room.

I hope you get the CU bouquet yesterday.

It is going to be a long healing journey but please know that we are with you in spirit everyday. Thank you for your blog.

Love,
Yui

Ponsawan,
Thank you so much for this blog. I check everyday for news about Ada. I shared information with my bible study group so that they too could get to know you and Ada.
I have been hesitant to comment on the different "takes" on religion. ie: whether or not being angry will keep you from heaven. Hate and resentment are not the same as anger. What you do with those feelings is the key. All who have heard the story are angered by the stupidity of what has happened to Ada. God knows your heart...and Ada's. Every time you or Ada come to my mind, I say prayer for you and your family. Joyce :)

I hope that you can bring your Corgis to visit Ada or fry some bacon (safely) in the room for her.

I remember bringing our Great Dane, Coal, to see my mother-in-law in her re-hab center. Coal cheered up EVERYONE!!!! Even the people who were not so crazy about dogs sent the nurse to request our visit.

Pets are so helpful in that setting. They know exactly how to cheer up the residents. Besides I am sure that the dogs miss Ada.

Love,
Yui
