Today I spoke with a doctor on the trauma team. Erlanger is urging us to discharge Ray, but we have yet to find proper care for him. We are in need of a skilled nursing facility (SNF) that will take him, with only Medicaid coverage. Erlanger case management says they have exhausted their search for a facility. FL Medicaid will not cover home health care nor therapy while at a SNF. This is putting us in a tough situation. What are we supposed to do? We have many questions, but not a lot of answers.
Below are a few links to help everyone understand TBI. Ray will have a long recovery process. This is only the beginning of his journey through healing.

Thank you for your thoughts, prayers, and support. Without Team Ray, we would be lost.
Peace and love,
