Ease in Chaos

Well, we have finally gotten Grandma settled into an assisted living facility today. She has been in and out of the hospital and nursing care centers since May, so it's really been a tough summer. It will take a while for her to get used to this situation, but it's a really nice place (brand new facility) with a wonderful staff. It's also very close to our house, which makes it a lot easier for us, especially my husband who has been driving an additional 45 minutes every other day after work to check in on her. I know she would rather be in her own home, but she's just not steady on her feet anymore. There are still many things that need to be taken care of, but having her in her new place is a real ease on all our minds!

There are still many other things going on for us in the real world, but this one has been the toughest, especially on my dear husband. So, for his sake, I'm very glad she's in her new place.
