My husband was in a snf for about 4 1/2 months. Luckily there was never any talk about sending him home before it was safe for him to come home. That required him to be able to safely transfer from the wheelchair. He still needed a hospital bed and was far from being able to stand. But, with IVIG we were seeing slow progress.

It was all based on safety. If you do not feel it would be safe for him, fight. Fight like mad and get the social worker involved. They had to do a home visit before they would approve it.

He first started going down hill January 2011. First walked in July 2011, walked a half marathon Dec 2012. Keep hope up!
