Life is so confusing

The last post I talked about the possibility of moving Daron closer to home. But sadly that isn't the case just yet. Apparently he doesn't meet the VA requirements for a nursing home (other then the CLC). Because he is able to do things for himself - shower, eat, dress) they feel as though he doesn't need to be in a skilled nursing home. They do feel like he will fit into an assisted living environment, but the only one the VA will pay for is the GR Veterans home - which is closed for at least the next 3 months. So, until that time, Daron will be staying in Battle Creek at the CLC until something changes.

I was able to talk with his doctor on Wednesday morning. I was able to share my concerns because Daron wants to come home. They were talking of sending him home, but after I shared my concerns about his safety, they agree that he can't come home. It just isn't safe for him to be home anymore.

Please continue to pray that Daron will adjust to the fact that he will be in Battle Creek for awhile. Every time we visit him, he asks to come home or says that he wants to come home. It is tough on him to understand that he is where he needs to be right now.

Please pray for Taylor as well. He is really starting to have a tough time with his Dad not being around. He is acting out a lot more then normal. I'm sure that he is getting tired of being inside due to the humidity. I'm praying that once school starts, he won't have as many problems....but I don't know.

Please continue to pray for me. Taking care of Taylor, the house & myself are taking a lot out of me these days. Then you add in the drives to Battle Creek to visit Daron 2x a week. That makes for one tired & stressed out me. Please pray that I will be able to continue to take care of everything that I have on my plate. I know that the Lord will give me the strength that I need for each day. But it is tough to ask all the time. Honestly, the last few days have been really tough. Anger has been one of my best friends & I need to break off that relationship immediately.

Thank you all for your prayer support & encouragement.
