Does David have a lot of output? If so, it is going to be a challenge for him to stay hydrated. I do not have a lot of output and I have had to have an IV put in twice in the past week b/c of dehydration. The first IV was just 1 liter but that was not enough. A couple days later I had to go to the hospital for 3 days and have another IV put in. Now, I am just trying to maintain my hydration. Have you thought about
having a home-care nurse come into your home and administer an IV for David? Indabag, has to have IV's come into his home...isn't that right Richard?
I am sorry David is back where this all started. I am surprised they sent him home in such a dehydrated state. No matter where you are during Christmas, I am glad that you are together.
