My wife had a stroke on Christmas Eve, and I went to be with her every day she was in the hospital (Our youngest son stayed with her at night.). Am I correct that I cannot take mileage for the trips to the hospital to be with her? It did take a lot of burden off the nurses during the holidays when they were on a skeleton staff.I would assume that the trip to the hospital to bring her howe qualifies, but what about the trip to the hospital behind the emergency ambulance? Once before she went to the emergency room with a TIA, and they had me take her home after several hours.I am happy to say that physically my wife is fine, but has problems sometimes with key words in a sentence when she wants to make a statement or ask a question. About two weeks ago, she shocked me by saying that she had forgotten how to add. She is going to speech therapy twice a week. It is sort of like going back to school complete with homework but no grades. There is progress, but it is slow, sort of 1-1/4 step forward and one step back.brucedoe
