My DH drove me up here last evening about 6:30 PM as we are to have bad weather today and he will come back and get me when I am ready to go back home.........for now I do not know exactly when but I will be here all day.
My sister is in great pain and is constantly nauseated and having emesis. The Team just made rounds this morning at 6:00 AM and will be making adjustments on her medications. They know which chemo med they want to start however she is to sick to start the med today????? We did ask for a consult with her attending and that should be around nooon time.
She is receiving Compazine and Zofran for the nausea and they are going to add a Scopalomine Patch. Also they are going to increase the Ativan as she gets 1 mg at bedtime.......how I wish I could write the orders. .
I am sitting in the Atrium on the 7th floor of the U of MN Hospital over-looking the Mississippi. The river is running fast down stream and I am watching the ice floes go by. The sky is heavy with storm clouds and I can hear the rumble of the jet planes over head as we are not far from the airport. It is peaceful to watch the river go by so I sit here and pray.
My heart is with all of you and please know that I am reading the posts but just not able to post much back. I posted this message in the A & P Forum also.
Karen, I will try to get an email to you sometime today........again your prayers are needed. It seems I have asked for more then my share of prayers this past year.
Love to all of you,
