Thanks for the replies everyone.
I have my first "personalized" bag of TPN going in right now...and it looks like a giant sack of MILK. A REALLY expensive giant sack of milk.
BUT, like randy said, my sugars seem to be stabalizing a bit... I don't think I would have been nearly so irritated with the whole thing yesterday if ANYONE at the hospital had explained ANYTHING about
TPN to me. Plus I hated the nurse I had at the time which always influences my cooperativeness. Can't help it.
So, I'm doing a bit better. Got to eat a little "real food" even. And of course, the magic "TPN MILK" is a dripping away into my arm.
I hope my guts appreciate all this!!!!
