he still calls the rehab center a hotel. He'll be moving to assisted living probably within the next week or so. Then he goes to a cottage where he'll be living by himself. We're working with two lawyers, one in PA and one in MD. And the Maryland issues are one jumbled mess. I seriously doubt he'll ever get to go home. Too many steps to the second floor, too many tripping hazards and way too much work to make it livable. There are a few construction issues that need to be addressed first. |
In the past 4 1/2 months, Charlie, my sister and I have managed to clear out most of the rooms. There's still so much *stuff* left. We had to throw away so much that was damaged, soiled, too old or totally falling apart. 124 contractor size trash bags, 60 boxes full of clothes, shoes, purses, chotskis and doodads went to Goodwill, 20+ bags to a church, 10+ bags to a homeless shelter, as well as boxes of stuff to each site. We're working on dumpster #4 just for the bedrooms, living room/dining room. Next we tackle the basement and then the attic. That will be at least two more dumpsters for that.
We did find homes for all five dogs and one cat. I still have two cats to trap and they've both got homes once they're caught and not with me.
I spend more time at his house than I do at my own. My cats look at like I'm an intruder.
