Negotiating with the PT

On Tuesday I happened to encounter Mom's physical therapist and mentioned that she would be getting therapy for her shoulder with the UCLA Home Health program.
But the PT was alarmed--if Home Health visited Mom, her own right to make visits would be cancelled.
After another flurry of phone calls to Home Health and the doctor, I decided to cancel Home Health and stick with this PT for both walking and for the shoulder.
Meanwhile, the PT had had Mom walking with her walker, despite the shoulder pain.
The good news today was that I mailed 80 Christmas cards from Mom to her family, friends, and former colleagues--so now I am hoping to start my own Christmas cards.
