Well, It is now labor day and we are seeing the end of summer.  Mom is not doing well.  She has another urinary infection and they are treating her with antibiotics.  She is very distant now and does not speak. I do try to coax words out of her but it is very difficult.  I am lucky if I get one word.  I am not happy with the financial situation there.  The nursing home promised to pay for her plate but so far payment has not been made. Also a tax rebate check was given to hem to put in her personal account,  Instead, they used it to pay fees.  I don't know what recourse I have to get them to put the money where it belongs. I am very frustrated with them.
