I made an appointment to go and see the vacant suite on Saturday. I'm not sure if it's time yet, but I figure that it can't hurt to at least see the suite. Thank you my friends for your advice and support. You are all awesome and I thank God for all of you.

Today the physical therapist visited and brought along the orthotist. They put a lift in Mom's shoe and the PT said that it evened out Mom's alignment and Mom said that she felt less pain. The orthotist took Mom's shoe, I guess that's where they are going to put the lift. I took a good look at Mom today when she was walking and it does appear that one pants leg is shorter than the other. Interesting. If she can have less pain then I will be thrilled. Please let this help her.

Betsy posted information on her blog about an upcoming program on PBS about caring for parents. It looks interesting. Thanks for the tip Betsy!

I think it can't hurt to evaluate your options by viewing the facility. You're in a good place emotionally because you don't seem to be feeling desperate - which I think will help when thinking things through and considering all options.

The shoe lift sounds so cool. I hope it helps!
