Some answers

Some answers –
or at least returned phone calls. 
Some actions. 
Dad is scheduled for release from temporary facility on Monday.
Must find a permanent facility they can afford –
where he will actually have a life –
not just medicated into a stupor and plopped in front of a TV.
Researching takes hours and focus and energy.
 
Plus – I still have to work –
the company expects that –
my creditors expect that –
my cats expect that –
they want to keep their food and their comfy home.
Me, too!

    Answers always come to our prayerful queries and desires. They may not always be what we wanted, expected, or asked for, but God’s answers are always the right ones. That has been a hard lesson for me, who has always considered herself to be sort of an adviser to the Almighty! 😀 Accept all the help offered to you that you can…this help is most often sent your way as an answer to your prayer; and never discount any option immediately, because you never quite know at the outset whether that option might be the right one, even though it seems far afield! You are surrounded on all sides by the love, prayers, and concerns of many…most of whom you do not even know. Walk in confidence, walk in peace…and as my Mom always said, “Everything will turn out OK.”

    Can I help in any way with the research?

    • grandawn says:

      Thank you, Cindy, for the offer! So very kind of you. 🙂

      This research involves calling (and looking at) facilities and getting information about costs, availability, etc. Meeting with Veterans Affairs people about whether there are benefits available. Dealing with the insurance company. Dealing with doctors and other staff people. Stuff like that. Has to be handled “hands-on” I’m afraid.
