Re: Form Roller

I use one. Not as much as I should but probably 2 -3 times week. I started when I went for Airrosti (Applied Integration for the Rapid Recovery of Soft Tissue Injuries). I have found it helps me immensely. I tend to get rock hard knots in my muscles. [more]

Re: Hip Replacement infection

Wow, what a snafu. I hope they get the infection under control ASAP. Hospitals and surgery are great until they are not. WOnder what the statistics are for hospital acquired infections are for this hospital/doctor. Best of luck to you both!

Re: The hubster…long time no update

Totally agree with everything YesGuise said. You are doing SO much for him, do not forget or deny yourself the care you need. Even a few hours can seem like a vacation. We used a program that was income based and allowed me to take a 4 hour break in [more]

Re: Update

I would vote for full nursing care. She can always go back to the other level if she is able. They are probably better able to deal with her flavor of difficulty and much better able to deal with her physical issues. Is it a real choice with her [more]

Re: We said yes.

Good luck with the integration. Be patient. Many problems don't surface until months later do keep monitoring carefully.

Re: using the power of atturney

Mom's Lawyer did the Lady bird deed for her. It is written that even though she is in a nursing facility she intends to return to her home. In the meantime it can not be sold or rented out although improvement can be made to it. Upon her death [more]

Re: Varidesk

I love my standing desk. I occasionally sit down - I have a ball chair, but it is rare. My neck and back and hip issues are SO much better. I wish everyone could have one.

Re: New Issues/Old Problem

I'm so sorry to hear this. I hope they prosecute her and throw her in jail for a while. It won't change her, though, sadly. Amazing how heartless and manipulative people can be. Just disgusting. So glad she has options with your cousin.

Re: Body Weight Workouts

For back, you can do good mornings, bent rows/flies, locust/superman, bridge. You can do reverse flys on a stability ball, too. Actually lots of stuff on the ball, google back exercise and stability ball.

Re: Medicaid Look Back Period

I'm sure you will get some excellent advice from people smarter than me. However, my advice is to go to an eldercare lawyer/financial adviser well versed in the state laws ASAP and before you do anything. My mom's situation was very different but we [more]
