She has to be able to transfer and she is nowhere close to doing that yet. With me about to have another surgery it wouldn't work out with her coming home now anyway. They do agree she is showing improvement mentally.
2 env. Knox gelatin 1/2 cup cold water 1 1/2 cups boiling water 1 cup sugar 2 tsp. WATKINS Root Beer Concentrate
While water is coming to a boil put gelatin in cold water and let sit. Pour boiling water in and stir until dissolved. Add sugar then root beer concentrate and stir. When sugar is dissolved pour into container(s) and refrigerate.

OK, I just made it and it is in the refrigerator sitting up now. I did find some things out while making it and some changes need to be made. I was trying to use white sugar and ran a little short so I added some brown sugar to make up the difference. I figured the root beer will be brown anyway and I think the real stuff did have some molasses in it any way. It turned out that the root beer concentrate is clear (I thought it would be brown) so if I used just white sugar the resulting finished gelatin would be clear. What I made has a brown tint to it. Future batches should be made with brown sugar. What I made filled 5 half ounce containers with a tiny bit left over. The remaining question is how is the concentration of flavor. After it sets up I'll find out.
