0716150807[1]Sunday care for clients and visit mom at rehab center.

Sunday night into Monday morning we had severe thunderstorms that put my power out about 3 a.m. and it was still out when I left at 6 a.m. to head to dialysis.

Monday dialysis with mom today. Cable and internet was out at the dialysis center from the storms over night. Care for clients.

Tuesday Mom had follow-up appointment with one of the internal med doctors as her PCP is off for a few weeks. He proscribed some cream for the ash that formed on her arm from the tape for the IV. He has given us several things to discuss with palliative care on Thursday and is pleased with her progress. Her hemorrhoids are acting up so he continued her hemorrhoids treatment that was started in the hospital but she was running out of supplies that were sent with her from the hospital and no Rx was given for more at discharge. Regular care for clients.

Wednesday dialysis today. Regular care for clients.

Thursday palliative care outpatient appointment today. This appointment, while not doing much with treatment, was very productive! The doctor following her at the rehab center is being changed, we have a new care nurse coordinator, we have a two-week follow up and are taking her basic healthcare power of attorney to the next level with disease specific treatment options directions. They are also going to review all medication information with the rehab center to reconcile with the clinic/hospital records as they do not seem to match. The rehab center list if VERY HARD to read and follow. Regular care for clients.

Friday dialysis today with dr. at dialysis. The dialysis dr is happy with her progress from her point of view and is not changing anything she is also happy that we have gotten in with palliative care. Regular care for clients. Laundry today.
