Home Sweet Home…

February 26, 2011

I am happy to be typing to you from the comforts of my own bed.  We are home and are beginning to comprehend the enormity of the last week and a half.  Lucy now has a double lumen broviac line which has already made life so much easier for us.  There was some miscommunication or misunderstanding, not sure which, with the anesthesiologist that caused some blood sugar issues.  The good news, Lucy rebounded well over 300(that’s very high for those who do not know) but all is back to normal now.  Helen came tonight to create a med schedule and get things organized.  We are all very much in need of sleep and some family time.  Thanks for all of the love and support, thoughts and prayers.  We couldn’t do this alone.

Hmm, "misunderstandings" with the anesthesiologist are probably my least favorite type. "Whatever you do, DON"T turn off the TPN" is probably something they hear about 50 times before they ever get Eithene into an OR. Of course, the last time they "misunderstood" Eithene came back to the ICU with a blood sugar of 28, so I feel it's somewhat necessary. :) Glad you got that double lumen! Isn't it so much better?

Enjoy home! :)
