|Mom and Dad at Andy's Wedding|
The night nurse has been amazing. He called dad "boss" and dad called him "sir" and it was a match made in heaven. He explained so much to both of us about his meds and what to expect tonight and has been so kind and attentive. We were given clearance just an hour ago for dad to begin eating and drinking. Graham crackers topped with chocolate pudding are the snack of choice at the moment. (Gross!) LOL
There is so much medication going on. He's on a heavy steroid for inflammation, an anti-seizure med, insulin, two IV's (fluids and one for sodium), an antacid, a long-term pain med, as well as an additional pain med for breakthrough pain. The barrage of medication is expected to last another two to three days.
Dad has been so concerned about responding to all of the comments on the blog. He asks me to read them over and over again. Thank you for all the kind words and thoughts today. They have meant so much to him and to the rest of us as well.
We still have a long fight ahead, but feel a bit more confident about that fight at the moment.
