I hear them talking about it. They have trained me 2 nights on hooking up the TPN. I really am even looking forward to going to sleep in the Target House bed and not being interrupted by the nurses all night long. I am looking forward to no beeping from the IV's. Devree has been sleeping a lot and yesterday they put a patch behind her left ear to help stop nausea. It has been working but she still likes her Ativan for pain. We learned how to give her drugs in the IV through a little ball so she won't have to swallow so many pills. The once a month IV for helping her not get pneumonia went like a breeze. We don't have to fight taking the Septra twice a day 3 days a week. Devree will get some Vincristine in the medicine room next week and that will probably make her sick. She is still having shots to boost her stem cells (GCSP) so she will have another apheresis soon.
Yesterday I left the hospital for a bit because I was going crazy. I went and opened an account because everytime I try to use my ATM the fees are like $5. each time. Also Devree gets a small check every month from a cancer group here in TN. I wanted to be able to cash those so when Devree is up to it, she can go shopping. I went over to the grocery store and got some things that we needed and I noticed some slight damage to the car I am driving. Then at lunch, one of my crowns on my teeth fell off. So I called Brenda and Todd about the damage and then I texted Celest about how to find a dentist to glue my crown on. Today I am seeing if I can get into the dentist and try to get Devree back to the Target House. I also tried to get all of my laundry done yesterday, and I had to leave the clothes in the dryer. Hopefully no one will take them.
Friday is going to be so great because hopefully we will be back at the Target House. The "B" clinic will still want to see Devree and she will have to get her GCSF shot, but I am going to ask to do that at home, so we aren't running down here at noon everyday through the weekend.
Nursing and Mothering that's what I do.
