    Wondering… does the C-diff cause a lot of sleepiness? My Dad has been dozing a lot pretty heavily

    Dad has had a busy week, getting settled into the VA and being assessed daily by the team there. We meet with everyone tomorrow to discuss treatment plan and we will also get a discharge date (gulp). So far, the VA has been everything we wanted for Dad in the first place, people knowledgable about SCI...

    started a topic New injury at the Augusta VA

    New injury at the Augusta VA

    I'm not a veteran, but my father is! He is going to the Augusta VA for rehab. Does anyone have any experience with them or suggestions for visiting family? So far we have been very assured by the communication with the admissions coordinator and nurse there. My brother lives in Savannah and I am relocating...

    It's been quite an eventful week! My Dad spent 5 days in the hospital where he was treated for a UTI. He was getting good care at the hospital and he needed more time to recover so I appealed their decision to discharge him after 2 days, which bought him extra time. Unfortunately during this time, Magee...

    The day Dad was supposed to be transferred to rehab I got a call in the middle of the night from the Ltac saying he needed a ct scan and was en route to the ER. He had a distended belly and wanted to check for blockages. The scan came back clear in his stomach but it showed that his bladder was very...

    I was finally able to get in to see my Dad yesterday after weeks of lockdown at the Ltac! He was so happy to see his children. I was not able to speak to his dr but will track her down today. Still haven’t received an answer about c-diff. Every time we call the nurses in, there’s an immediate and...

    I would appreciate KLD’s opinion on this… ideally Magee can take my dad and then have him transfer to Augusta VA afterwards where he can receive additional rehab and they can help coordinate transition into my home/care. The alternative is waiting out VA in a Snf. Should I push hard for Magee to...

    Tampa and Augusta VAs have accepted my Dad but they have waiting lists. Tampa is smaller and less likely to have beds soon. We are putting our faith in Augusta they have 40 beds (normally 60 but they are short staffed) and he is 7th on the list.

    Meanwhile, I’ve been talking to the case...

    Following other people’s stories on CC has been so helpful, I’ll try to update as often as I can here so that people can follow as long as I’m able to keep this up. As many before me have said, SC injuries take you on many twists and turns.

    The past 2.5 weeks have not been great...

    Ok so the VA in Augusta accepted him!!! I’m so grateful for this site and for everyone weighing in it’s been so helpful. The only thing is they have a waiting list that is several weeks long. I can delay at the ltac but not sure for how long. He might have to go somewhere in the interim, VA coordinator...

    The LTAC wants to discharge my dad in the next week, give that he is medically stable. He has not been able to sit up without his heart rate dropping below 50, what they called Bradycardia. My understanding is that this has happened 2x, and both times they were attempting to sit him on the edge of the...
