    My mom feels it's "sinful" to try to sue because she sees it as trying to make money off her mother's suffering, instead of it being a way to get someone to help make the home do what they're supposed to, and to possibly make them pay financially so this doesn't happen to someone else

    Frankly, I'm waiting on getting copies of the formal complaint to the state and for the records of prior falls (hospital sent old records to storage) so that I have everything together, then I'll talk to an attorney myself to at least get someone on record that can light a fire under these people. It's not about the money, it's about penalizing someone/a facility that is putting others in danger.

    That's right! They should not be allowed to get away with it. It is about honoring the elderly and protecting them when they are unable to do it themselves. My Mother had dementia. She could not speak for herself, so I had to do it for her. We had a special bond, woe unto anyone who neglected her. I was just making a suggestion. God love your sweet Grandmother.

    Verti - lovely photos as usual. I really enjoy your shares on Facebook.

    Did my eyes deceive me? A FLIPCUP sighting? I was just thinking about Flip and V this week. Vanders, if you are around give me a call sometime!! I think I may still have your number....

    Saturday morning here in Irvine, been outside moving sprinklers in the fog, anticipating delivery of a new HD set up from DTV and a 55" Samsung Smart TV this morning.
    Have a great day Gators!

    We need to revive this thread. I have been neglecting it myself. It is good to be up early on a Friday morning after that great game Hannah Rogers pitched yesterday. I am so proud of these Ladies! Let's root for them to go all the way!!!

    Congrats to the Lady Gator softballers, making it look easy in OKC, day of rest for them. The guys on the otherhand squandered multiple chance with men on base and drop game one to the C of C kids. Lose today and they are done, time to Gator done :)
    Grandkids watched some of the LG game but in the end Alvin and the Chipmunks won out as their choice of evening entertainment...........
