Stargazer10, I've moved you to the Texas forum so you'll get answers from people who deal with that system every day.

You'd need to know his medications and how advanced his disease is, how disabled he is.

I have arthritis, but it's low-level and doesn't stop me from doing anything; he may be quite different.
You'll know you've created God in your own image when He hates all the people you do.

Yeah he's pretty bad. Daily pain and swelling... on some days he can't get up from bed and won't be able to get dressed... I think it's called chronic gouty athritis.... He takes a daily medication for it and a steroid as needed but even with that it's still bad...
