Thanksgiving in the Hospital


Thanksgiving in the Hospital

emergency_room_591No Thanksgiving for us.

After dealing with an aggravating first week out of the hospital, we are headed back in for the week. They want to change his IV medication and monitor it in the hospital to make sure it doesn't cause issue to his kidneys.

Although, had they actually followed the plan set forth for the current IV antibiotic I don't feel it would be an issue now. But unfortunately, they don't want to listen to me because I don't have the big fancy degree on my wall.

I don't know how long we'll be in the hospital. I'm anticipating the entire week, will be surprised if it's only a few days, and will be extremely pissed off if we are in and out in one day because I just spent a good amount of money on transportation to get there. They can't setup an admission so we can go straight into doing his treatments, we have to go through the ER.

I have a shuttle coming early morning for us so I can get him there, feed him, give him his morning meds (because I have a feeling he won't get the right meds until very late in the day) and hopefully the earlier we hit the ER, the earlier in the day we'll be able to get him setup in an actual room and admitted.

I've had poor sleep the last few days because I've been prepping the house, grocery shopping, cleaning and getting things ready so I don't have to worry about it when I get back.

The last few months have been terribly draining for me. The last few weeks causing most of the mental and physical anguish I'm dealing with. I've got my own issues that I can't even focus on until I get Marc settled. Let's hope it's soon. I need some sleep and a reprieve so I can be revitalized emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

Praying for good news and a good long break!

So very frustrating. I'm praying you can get some quality rest, respite, and renewed energy. I'm also praying that these \"experts\" <i>listen</i> to you.


So sorry, my friend. I wish I lived closer, so I could bring you some pumpkin pie, and give you a reprieve from the hospital for a bit. Please know I'll be thinking about you.


I am so sorry. I will pray for you and your husband. You are a strong woman.


Ooooooohhh, Casandra. I am so sorry--it seems you've been getting such a run-around which makes you literally run around so much that you can't help but be run down. I hope the hospitalization proves to be a benefit to both of you. I'm thinking of you and wishing we could be with you in person right now. Please keep us posted as you can.
