O'Fallon, IL (Hi 100 Lo 76)
It's hot here, but no where near Florida heat. It's really comfortable not as much humidity. I dread winter, but I'm not working and don't have to get out.
Just want everyone to know, this is a blog of info and maybe it will help others in things going on that you wouldn't think of. I also want to have things documented for future reads and questions of what happens.
The update from last Sunday with Jim. It's been a whirlwind and I can't put it into each day. It's all a blur. I thought I had the apartment but when I got the final application Jim wasn't on it. So I'm still working on that he has to have an application, which is $50 for EACH of us. There's law here in our county that you have to pay $10 to the city to cover emergencies and make sure there's only one person in a one bedroom and two in a two bedroom etc, (that's adults). It's put in a fund that goes to emergencies, like tornadoes and earthquakes or fire etc. It goes to help to the community in disasters. We're ready to move in on the 21st.
I'm going to rant a bit, most people that's dealt with the hospitals and rehabs already know it's a money racket. Jim is on tons of meds. I looked everyone of them up. It's no wonder that people are over medicated. I hate our medical system. If they know they're going to get paid, they lay it on, needed or not. I know, I'm not a doctor, but I also know some of the meds are scary and mixing them? I'm very upset.
The Barnes complex is enormous. There's schools for everything. The radiation area is in same building as Jim so they took him by wheelchair to get fitted for the radiation treatments. The crossbars is where the radiation will be aimed. That all starts after rehab on June 23.
