"In the near future."

I got a call back from the West Los Angeles VA regarding the imminent opening of their new facility.  When I asked when they thought they would be opening, the response I got was, "In the near future."  Wonderful!  With details like that, we are all set to go!  Right.

Apparently the facility is waiting on one more licensing document, and once they have that in hand, then they can schedule the final inspection, which they are almost confident they will pass.  There are a lot of 'ifs' and 'whens' in this scenario.

When all those 'ifs' and 'whens' are accomplished, move-in dates will start the following week.  I was also told that they will be moving in 'war-time veterans' first, then possibly spouses of those veterans, and then 'peace-time veterans'.  As I'm sure you've guessed, my Dad falls into the last category. 
Before hanging up with the admissions officer though, I asked her to put a note in my Dad's file requesting an earlier move in date due to financial need.  I hope they take that under consideration.

So, I'm not really sure why I'm not more stressed about the situation considering my Dad's bank account will only be able to afford his home through the month of July.  I guess there's just not much I can do about it at the moment.  Just have to be hopeful that the stars align just in time.
