Not a good week

Holli is still having some complications due to her previous vomiting and then needing to have enemas and laxatives. This caused her to get dehydrated and her electrolytes imbalanced. She is receiving IV fluids along with her feeding trying to get her blood work back to normal. This has been a hard last several weeks for her as well as myself. She is very quite now and does not try to make any sounds but still opens her eyes and moves her left side.
I am still trying to get Holli placed in a facility in Nashville. Bordeaux is where I am trying to get a bed. Because of her not having insurance until we can get to Tennessee and apply for tenncare and no beds at this present time has become an issue. The admission's nurse has given her case to her supervisor to review but did not sound promising. I need special prayers at this time for Holli's medical problems and for us to find a facility. I am trying not to get discouraged but it is really hard sometimes not to feel very low and helpless. It has been 5 months since the accident. I pray that something good will happen soon.

I have NOT forgotten about you PROMISE! I ended up in our other office and will not get back to the main until Monday so sorry! This might be a VERY long shot but have you checked into Alive Hospice... I know Holli is not terminal but they may provide temporary care for her until you can get her on tncare and into a place?? I know they help even when there is no insurance and No money. Its just a thought and they are the most wonderful people! I am just thinking outside of the box.. I will let you know something as soon as I can find out.
Your in my prayers!

Diane, it's perfectly understandable at this point that you might sometimes feel low or helpless in this increasingly complex situation. I have marveled all along at your posts, how you so selflessly give to Holli and yet write so little about your own difficult times. Thank you for being so open and for sharing Holli's and your experiences with us. Please know that even those of us who have not met you continue to be with you even when things get tougher.

You are in my prayers
I apologize for not coming in int he last week. I had to work 7 days. But I should make it in Friday after work with boxes and bubble.
Once I have everything gathered I'll send it all out.

Hang in there, Diane and Holli. This is going to get better.

Much love, Desiree

I love you, sister. I know this is sooo hard. Your situation has been much harder than mine was. I am praying for you everyday.

When my mom needed to be transferred from PA to CA, we realized the easiest way was to have her admitted to the emergency room at UCLA first - then we could segue with less paperwork to a nursing home. My mom is medicare/Medicaid.

So maybe getting Holli admitted to an emergency room might help in your situation? Talk to a social worker in your area (TN.)

Take care! xo
