I haven’t had to deal with a nursing home until lately. Both my grandmothers were in one until they died.
My mom had a stroke the last of October 2009 by November 3 the hospital was ready to ship her out to a rehabilitation place. My dad can’t drive, so we thought that local would be better. So we have to pick a nursing home that has a rehabilitate hall in it. It’s really like going to the nursing home not rehab.
The first day we moved my mom I thought everything was ready at the nursing home. We get there roll her in from the ambulance and everyone is standing there looking at each other like they don’t know what to do. Finally they get her a room (they should have known what room number when we went through the door.)
She’s been taken care of good, but we are now in the 4th month and she can’t go home because she can’t get out of bed by herself (the stroke affected her right leg.) Some of the nurses complain to her about having to get her out of bed, but she has to have help.
They have some real good help and they have some that are the biggest drama queens you’ve ever seen. They have help that shows up or they decide they don’t want to come at all, which makes it hard on everyone else.
Nurses need to show up and take their job seriously because they are special people, and they are taking care of special people that they may learn something from. They need to also leave all their problems at home or at the door when they walk through and not share it with all the patients.

Education is a wonderful thing. The United States is one of the few countries where everyone is eligible for an education. High School is not restricted to only the smartest kids – anyone who makes the effort to pass the lower grades can go on to high school and/or college.

To the Editor:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank District Attorney Bret Burns and Chickasha Police Chief Lynn Williams for going above and beyond their job descriptions to help me with a situation that recently occurred at Ninnekah High School.
Chickasha Police Chief Lynn Williams helped in a matter that occurred in the Chickasha city limits, but affected Ninnekah School. I appreciate his assistance. The Chickasha School District is extremely lucky to have a police chief who will go the extra mile to support education and student safety.
