What about the other 2%?

Some never recover.

You'll need to be moved to a quiet,

stress free environment

under full supervision.

Do you know somebody who can help you?

All my friends work full time.

My grandmother has a cabin up North.

Maybe I could stay with her?

Is your grandmother capable

of caring for you at this level?

I guess, I haven't seen her in awhile.

I don't think you understand.

This is a very debilitating disease.

It's likely that things are gonna

get worse before they get better.

I don't really have anyone else.

Our other option is

a skilled nursing facility.

A nursing home?

No, it's an assisted care environment.

They'll help you with eating, walking,

bathing, etc, etc...

No, no, no.

Why don't you give your

grandmother a call right now?


Grandma, it's Rachel.



Your granddaughter.

Hello sweetie, how are you?

Fine, fine, I'm just fine.

Listen, I need to ask a favor of you.

Well of course, anything.

I'm going to be laid up for a bit

and I need a place where I can go...

Where someone can keep an eye

on me while I recover.


What's wrong?

I just...

I just caught a little something

and I need a place to stay.

If it's too much trouble

I can ask somebody else.

Nonsense, I would love to

have you visit me.

Are you sure it's okay?

I have all the room in the world!

When are you coming?

I'm not sure yet, I'll have

to let you know later.

That is so good, Rachel.

You know, I'll be saying a prayer

for you in the meantime.

Thanks, grandma.

See you soon.


Hi grandma, it's Rachel.

Well Rachel, how are you?

Well I've been better.

Well you know I hadn't heard from you

in awhile and I was hoping you

hadn't forgotten about our visit.

Can you meet me at the doctor's office?
