Default Well I'm Back....Not 100% But I'm Here

Back in May (5/8) I went to the hospital for a SEVERE MS exacerbation. They also uncovered a pretty bad UTI. They decided to admit me and it ended up being for 10 days.

They kept me in bed for 10 days even though I begged to get out of bed just to stand. I kept telling them I wouldn't be able to walk if they kept me in bed that long without letting me a at least stand up.

Just as I suspected when they discharged me I could not walk. I had to go to a rehab for PT (5/17) . They (PT) discharged me (6/17), too, and I still could not walk!

The AL took me back but is now telling me that I need an additional care and it's going to cost me $2,068 more per month!!

I don't know what's going to happen but I don't have that much extra money each month. They are talking like I'll have to leave if I cannot pay the extra money.

This has me so upset that I can't eat or sleep. What on earth am I going to do? Where will I go? Seems like they should not have accepted me back and told the P T rehab that I wasn't
ready.

Kitty, this is way outside my experience but I am thinking about you.

I wonder why they wouldn't let you walk, most hospitals around here want patients moving asap..
Were they short on staff to assist and thought it a risk/liability?

What a nightmare. Do they expect you to be out on the streets with a tin cup in your hand begging for handouts so you can afford to return?

Does this place have anything like a human services coordinator or social services person--someone you can explain your situation to and ask what your options are? I hope so.
