    I do wish you'd reconsider. Jim's services would be vastly different than Jon's, simply because he is on Medicare. Having someone come and do labs from the home would just be wonderful. PT and OT...

    I also worry about the...

    Get the wound care nurse regardless. I think it will be a constant battle to get your regular nurse to do her job adequately as far as the wounds go.

    I was thinking "Daisy" for your Roomba. It's a pretty flower name like Rose, and she will keep your home "fresh as a Daisy."

    I would rule out a UTI with Jim. They have the same symptoms as prostate issues. Even the drugstore carries home UTI test kits. If he does have a UTI, quick action is needed as they can get bad fast...

    Rose, the wounds are very concerning to me. May I suggest you begin photographing them each time you tend to them? You can then email them to the nurse for input.

    Call the non-emergency number for EMT's and see if they will help. After all, they come out to pick people off the floor, do welfare checks, etc.

    Take care.

    Rose, I am aware that Jon doesn't travel unless he's in a life-threatening situation. I was just wondering about the pre-dating of prescriptions. It is legal here in TX for docs to write 3 mos worth.

    Rose, that sounds awful. A super absorbent pad is needed, so it will soak and can be changed. You mentioned the hole is on Jon's thigh. Perhaps the pad could be held on with a Ace wrap, just snug...

    Rose, so sorry to read about this. My mom had something very similar with her edema due to congestive heart failure. Her sock and shoe were just soaked in fluid.
