The hard part is over.
I'm matching you with one of our specialists who will be calling you in the next few minutes.
The couple could also still have the reception at their chosen site, probably already having put a down payment on it. But imagine the thrill for the grandmother and other residents to see a couple in wedding attire - I'm sure it would be a cheerful event for all, even if the other residents don't attend the ceremony.
The fact that rehab has been approved leads me to believe that Greatgma needs further inpatient care and PT.
Given these facts I doubt that it would be recommended that she attend a wedding.
One other option would be to conduct the wedding actually in the facility. Just a few close family members present then the bride and groom go onto their chosen religious facility for a religious ceremory to be conducted . That way the new couple can enjoy all the trappings of their planned nuptials. Greatgma will have participated in the wedding but won't be a distraction at the actual celebration.
This is frequently an outpatient proceedure so the fact that gma actually spent three days in the hospital indicates that she was thought to be at greater risk
In this era of technology, she could still "see" the wedding through some kind of livefeed (Skype?). And if the wedding is nearby, the great-grandchild and new spouse could stop by and visit her at some point.
Checking again, I see that MAC is right. I don't know how I got to hits on feet bones. Guess I shouldn't be online at 11:30 at night.
I think GA is right. Talk this over with the discharge planner.
However, I'm wondering about her ability to go to a wedding so soon after surgery. If I understand correctly, this is surgery on one of her foot bones. Is she able to stand and walk on that foot? What's her pain level? Has she gotten up to walk while at the hospital? Could she tolerate sitting through the ceremony and reception?
I think the person to ask tomorrow is the discharge planner at the hospital; she should know about continuous coverage.
That must be a tough decision; I'm sure she'd love to be at the wedding. Perhaps you could either video the wedding, or hire an ambulette to take her there. That would probably be easier than getting in and out of a car.
