When my husband was in rehab, he had had a broken wrist, so didn’t get maybe the whole treatment that he could have gotten, or the extent that he could have gotten.  Of course, a week after her came home; he got released to do more.  He wanted to come home, he probably could have gotten approved to stay longer, he probably should have gotten approved to stay longer.  I would probably say that if, in that situation, I wanted him home, I know he wanted to come home, but for his movement, and his ability to do things for himself, he probably should have stayed longer.  You know, but three months is a long time to be away from your family, and your house, and your life.  He wanted to go back to that, and I understood that at the time, but looking back it probably would have made our lives easier had he stayed another month, and gotten the additional in-house therapy he could have gotten.
