MIL has stayed w us for 7 weeks - time to go home
MIL broke her ankle in 3 places and was placed in the hosp for a week where they put a metal faxiator (sp?) on her leg. She's 65 and lives alone, Dr's are cautious because she's diabetic but not to bad - borderline.
From the hospital she was placed in a active living short term care center do she could be looked after and receive physical therapy. After 5 weeks insurance stopped paying and told her to go live with us. She was not allowed to go hack to her home at tge time because she has a sicken living room and bedroom. We have a 2 story house, so she's in the bedroom downstairs. We work and are gone 8-11 hours a day, they did not care. We had to get a fridge and microwave as well as many other things; kitchen is upstairs.
She finally had the fixtature off abd a regular cast placed on. We have had to push and prob her to move around do she heals as she was told to.
Cast is finally off and a boot is placed on. She has been told to walk around. We are trying to find ways for her to move around. Basically the dr said as she is comfortable she can go back home and drive w the brace on - bit the boot (brace is under the boot).
MIL's house is messy DH said he is going over to clean it- no comment. When we bring up anything about going home she avoids the topic.
This is not permanent, this is temp and once DH cleans and does a few safety things she is more than ready to go home. How do we do this when she is not wanting to even talk about it. If she does not want to live at her home we need to know, we need to place her house for sale and she needs to move into an active living place. We feel we can not fully live our lives while tending to her every need. Also during all this time I m/c we want to try for baby 2 and doing IVF is stressful enough I need time for me. Everything is all about her and no one else.
I am just lost.
