Mom update @ 10:27 pm

Mood: cheerful cheerful

Got a call from Mom earlier today saying that she has chosen an aftercare place in Maywood, NJ, near where she's at currently.

We haven't seen her out of the wheel chair when we've visited but I guess that is to be expected. She says that she thinks she's doing well, which counts for something.

She is transferring from the rehab facility to the after care place next Friday - "(in the) black Friday". Luckily I know a few back routes to get from the house to where she currently is, Kessler in Saddle Brook and we'll just have to brave the local streets to the Maywood Care Center.

For those who don't know about that area, its near a couple of the large feeder roads into the Route 4 & 17 shopping district of Bergen County, NJ, which gets mobbed and gridlocked between Thanksgiving and the holidays.

We Are Not Looking Forward to being anywhere near that area on the day after Thanksgiving! We've even asked Mom if she could postpone her transfer, but alas, Medicare dictates the length of her stay, so she will be released next Friday around 10AM

I'm glad to hear that Mom is doing well. Even if the timing of the transfer is yucky, its still moving forward.

I know routes 4 & 17. When you drive there remember to Breathe. A lot. (And don't throw unopened cans of Coke at the a**h*le drivers who cut you off. *g*)

{hugs} - without exponentials =)

As someone who grew up in neighboring River Edge and gradually embraced the benefits of the Sunday Blue Laws as I got older, I am completely aware of why you are not looking forward to the time of your Mom's release. Best of luck to you and glad to hear about the continued recovery.
