Back to RHI

After being here at Methodist Hospital, we had learned that, according to Medicaid's rule, Ada cannot go back to RHI without their approval. We were devastated and the first think that came to my mind was "What did we do wrong?"
We have everyone here working on getting her back to RHI. Everyone was sitting on the edge of the chair because if they say no, we have to take her home today. This morning, the answer was no. Both Terry and I went to court in the morning, so we did not get the bad news. By the time I came back, we received the good news that she can go back to RHI.
We started working on remodeling the house today. Terry ordered the big trash bin so we can put all the unwanted stuffs in there. We will strip the carpet and put the new wood floor on the entire first floor. We will put up the wall around the family room and make it a room for Ada, also will convert the back porch into a big bathroom for her. Lots of work to be done and lots of help will be needed.
I cannot wait to take Ada home. It has been almost 6 months finally the whole family will be back under one roof.
The more time at RHI, the better for her. I think we can take her back for outpatient so she can continue the rehab.
Ada is getting better and better everyday. Everyday she makes me smile for little things she does like shaking her head, putting her thumb up, pointing her finger, hand jester. There are a lot of WOW! lately from people around her.
Well, don't know how long we have to wait for the ambulance to come.
At this moment, I am happy, really happy.

I wish I lived closer. I'd be there in a heart-beat to help you with your renovations. I love painting and wallpapering.

It sounds like Ada sure is making some great steps forward!!! How exciting. From what you are sharing it appears Ada is finally "waking up". Fantastic news!!

I'm continuing to pray for you and your family. God bless you richly!

If you need materials from Home Depot, I can help. It will be wonderful to have new laminated wood floor; it is so easy to clean and maintain.

Purging always gives a good feeling. Piak has done well to get a trash container. This is a great beginning. Good luck on the renovation work; you will be even happier from now on.
