    Scorpio, will J be home for Christmas or still in Rehab? Just thinking about Christmas cards for the Vet.

    If he's still going to be there for a bit (closing in on Christmas) please send me his address and I'll mail him a card. Great idea and something we should be looking to do more often for our neighbors and especially our Veterans.

    When I visited 11/29, he said six weeks. I don't know exactly when he will be discharged, but it will probably be after the new year. Any mail he receives there after being discharged will be forwarded.

    Scorpio, I called again this morning (5th try) and the lady that answered the phone said he wasn't there? Spelled out his name and she didn't know if he'd been discharged or anything else about him! Has he left the facility?

    Not that I'm aware of. He can't even walk to the loo.

    UPDATE

    Last week I called the rehab twice, and twice was told that J was not at the rehab. My concern was growing as I had not seen any activity at his house and his boarder was nowhere to be found either. The guy that boards at his house made an appearance this morning so I finally got the scoop. J was sent to the hospital for additional scheduled surgery to tie up some loose ends. He will be returning to the rehab in a few days.

    So, the old dog is still alive and kick'n.

    12/25/19 FINAL UPDATE:

    Christmas day

    J is going home today, he was supposed to be at the rehab until after the new year, but his progress has been better than expected. Who knows, maybe some encouraging phone calls and prayers had something to do with it.

    Once again, Thank you to all who participated, and a very merry and blessed Christmas.

    I was never able to get a hold of him. So I did the next best thing! I sent him a Christmas card. I'm hoping he got it.
