An update on my mother-in-law: Linda arranged to have her come over for a visit. Grandma's visit was approximately 1.5 weeks (transitional phase) when a spot opened up at one of our local nursing homes.
Timing, karma, prayers and being at the right place at the right time... we were blessed to have a bed become available so quickly (waiting lists can be lengthy). Her diagnosis of Progressive Alzheimer's moved her near to the top of the list. She has good and bad days and will be moved into their secure wing once a spot becomes available which is best, given her current state.
Thank you all for the well-wishes.

Happy New Year! May you be blessed with good health and a grand turnaround if you're struggling through health issues. May happiness be your constant companion.
