As far as rehab facilities, so many of them have severely restricted patients that it is depressing. I spent a month only in a rehab place - and some of the treatment may have contributed to the nasty infection I had.

I'm sorry if I sounded so righteous. We can only deal with the hand we're dealt and yours is worse than mine - my apologies.
