Susan and I were on the phone most of the day with Arrowhead and the new facility options. Looks like he will either be in Joshua Tree or in Yucca Valley. I will know more tomorrow once the social worker and case manager have all our options available. But both seem to be a for sure option as of right now...just depends on hospice stuff. Looks like he could be moved to his new digs as early as Thursday or Friday depending on transport.

This is really really important folks. If he is here, we can see him everyday and he desperately needs his spirits lifted. This is HUGE. Plus I can force him to do physical therapy cause he actually listens to us when we are able to see him more often.

YAY!!!!
Updates to follow.

Good Job Agent!

I hope he can get in to JT since I live near that one I could visit him often.

If you need help with transportation this week, Pm me I could help with that.

Yea, Blitzo is comin back to JTree! I can't wait to see him back to his gOOd'ol self!!!

Thanks BB, transportation will be covered. He's not getting released to us... rather transported to another facility. Under the circumstances and his current condition, he'll be catching a medical transport ride.

Our game plan is to go check out the two JTree, Yucca Valley options. One has much better ratings than the other but hope to get a feel for which facility would suit him best. Both pretty convenient for us locals and/or visitors that would want to stop by when in the area.

We're pretty excited to have him back on our turf, or close to it. The distance is hard, phone calls get boring for him and you almost need to plan to go visit and just hope that by the time you arrive his good day hasn't slide into a bad day.

Super psyched that we have options! Options are good and looking forward to more regular visits and being able to drop off the goodies that people send. Sonya........ don't preheat the oven yet but we're close :)

Awesome Sooze. There's enough medical folks around the high desert who can give you good advice on where to relocate Billy. Check your e-mail.

Blitzo is getting moved to Sky Harbor Care Center in YV later today, still waiting on ETA regarding transport and such but Russ & I will be meeting him there for intake.

We are excited to have him closer to home and perhaps even get him moved to the JT facility soon (preferred facility). But for today's exercise he's aware that he's moving east of Colton and closer to home turf.

I'll bring the various cards & letters that everyone has sent this past week and get him set up with some personal items too. Neebee, can't wait to see the quilt and sure will be cool to get that on his bed. In the meantime, I'll bring him a something to keep him comfortable until the special gift arrives.

It makes sense to keep things mailed and such set to our house. We'll deliver it to him. I'll get a list of rules (if any) that apply regarding to food and such. They already told me no valuables...... which didn't exactly make my heart soar but probably standard practice in facilities like that.

Thanks everyone for being there! I'm sure he'll be excited to see visitors soon!

This is huge news! So glad he will be close by. Both facilities are on the way to where I drop kids off for school so daily visits are easy and we can get his spirits up, which already seem better knowing he is moving.

Just want to give a huge shout out to Sooze for putting in a lot of time and energy in getting Blitzo into the preferred facility in Joshua Tree! You rock woman!!!

Sooze thank you SO much for the updates. I feel so much better knowing Billy will be back in the high desert tonight where he belongs...close to his friends and all who love and care about him. We'll for sure pay him a visit this weekend if his condition is up for it.

Hope that this new chapter back home again and out of Arrowhead will bring a stronger and speedier recovery.

You and Russ are true heroes for looking out for him so well during his arduous journey. True selflessness.

Thanks for sharing that Russ. That's the Bloot we all know.

Hey, do you have the fish-cam video of when he was raking your yard BITD?
