Hi friends here is a update Vote for this post

 After Richard was aloud to go home from that terrible place he was in in rehab that same night I found him sitting on the floor and I could not move him. Had to call 911. He was in bad shape jerking with his arms & hands . Not understanding what I told him to do when he was trying to walk with the walker. He would not eat and lost over 8 lbs.  I brought him to our family doctor and on the way he was throwing up. Was told by the doctor to take him to the emergency in Jacksonville in St. Vincent Hospital. They checked him out and he ended up in ICU several days.

 Richards lithium was sky high way and they had to put in a shunt and cleaned his blood . His kidneys was shutting down I heard from the doctor in the ER. He was in the ICU several days and than was put back in a room yesterday. He is now doing very well he has not had his lithium for several days and the dose will have to be lowered because he has slow working kidneys. 

   His head is clear and the crazy movements he was making before are also gone. His color has returned in his face too .Richard was in such bad shape he could not even tell you who was president or his birthday. He has the same kidney specialist that I have been using since 2000. Am trying hard to make him eat and drink lots of water for his kidneys.

He could use some more therapy but I hope that it can be dome at home or at a place here close by.

I am so tired and have not been home much. Levi has been a angel except at my friends house he  was trying to get out the door he wanted to go home.

The rehab Richard was in is terrible made 2 pages of complaints and gave it to the director. There was never any nurses around not even at the station. I should turn them in to the state so many was treated bad. The kitchen gave him a uncooked pork patty and the bacon was not cooked. Thank G-D He does not eat pork he could have gotten real sick from that food. He hated the place and they left him sitting in a chair over 6 hours long after the staples was taken out at the doctors office who did the surgery. He had no bell to call a nurse but even if there had been one they do not come.

So glad he is now in a very good hospital.

 Glad I was able to post today.

 Love,Yoka and Levi

Thank you very much for the link. I will use it I don't even understand that they are in businness .Does the state walk around with eyes closed?
Am still mad and I know that place is not cheap.
So glad Richard came home yesterday. The nurse has been here already .
The hospital called to make sure he takes his medications and he needs his lithium checked this Friday at his doctors.
So grateful it is such a good Hospital and has such caring staff.
Thanks Bob.

Yoka you are so blessed you found Richard in time
You probably saved his life.
What that home did to Richard is unconscionable
Please ask a good attorney what can be done.
You have a solid case of intentional abuse
causing Richard to experience pain and suffering.

So glad that Richard's doing better now! That rehab needs to be reported. Places like that get away with so much and it's just not right. It's too bad the states are so understaffed that they can't enforce the regulations that are in place...Keeping all of you in my prayers!

Prayers.
Richard is home and he started to eat better.
The nurse came buy for about 2 hours.
We was told that a therapy person is also coming. Richard was walking with a nice stroller out side for a little bit. He did very well so far and I am so glad that he started to eat again.
The Hospital called to make sure he is getting his medication and one medication he no longer can take from the heart specialist. It does too much damage to his kidneys. They even gave me a number if I had questions . They are all so nice.
Will call our heart specialist and explain it to them.
Natasha came by to give him a hair cut.
It is a very nice day here.
Thanks everyone.
Am so happy Richard is doing well.

Love from all of us,
Yoka and Levi

Oh my Yoka, I'm so sorry to hear about the troubles Richard was having and I can only imagine the effects that had on you as well. So happy that you've got things under control now and that he is improving.

As others have said, I'd be reporting that rehab centre, if not, their abuse of patients will continue. I wonder how many other people had the same treatment and if a class action suit would be considered???  And don't forget to mention the uncooked food - good lord!!!

Poor Levi, his world has been turned upside down.. but now I hope you'll have the time to relax with him and give yourself a little rest too. I hope Richards nurses are young and cute and get him onto a speedy recovery.

and I know you are all still missing Moshe,
hugs, Theo

Richard is doing very well this morning he was walking a lot with his chariot that is what I call it. He can sit down when he is tired.
He is eating very well and now he tells me that he should have taking my advice.it would not suprice me if he can walk the stairs and take a nice warm shower tomorrow.
Monday he sees the Urologist he still needs a small thing done but they can do that in his office. I know they are not doing it Monday but when that is done he should be so much better.
Am trying to get ready for Passover today.it starts tonight. Our daughter Anouska is on the way from Boston. It will be so nice to have her here this week. Can't wIt her cute Yorkie Dawson.
Hope soon to have some time to quilt I missed it so much but was able to crochet a blanket for Hospice.
Well I better get back to the kitchen and start making some Matza ball soup. Am so behind.
Will turn that place in next week for sure.
You are so right we still miss Moshe so very much.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Love,Levi and Yoka

Is it proper to say Happy Passover?? If so, I wish it to you and Richard and your family.

Yoka, promise me you will not try Richard on the stairs unless there is someone else with you. We don't need any more bad news for a while LOL

take care and have a good, restfull weekend,
hugs, Theo
