Welcome to those who have joined our blog recently. Please forgive me if I don't name you personally, but I do appreciate you all.
Today has been an very tiring day. V was unable to get out of bed this morning due to the intense pain in her lower back. I gave her some morphine, a cup of tea and a bowl of apple sauce. She has a hospital bed, so I got her sitting up. We called Hospice and they sent a nurse around immediately. What an amazing organization. The nurse did an assessment and between us we got her up and shunted her around on her walker. In the meantime, Dee from Chase Bank had arrived and was busy in the office with moving all the pre-authorized bill payments. We managed to get V dressed and between us all we got her into the car. By now the morphine had kicked in and she was feeling a bit more comfortable.
The doctor was so good with her and checked her over, dressed her skin tears and said that he believed that her arthritis had overwhelmed her. He gave her a shot of cortisone and we went home. We stayed at the Chateau for dinner, which was ordered in from the dining room, watched some TV together and I got her ready for bed. When we left she was actually starting to walk on her own with the help of the walker. I am back there early tomorrow morning. Her PCW will be in as well to give her her shower.
I just dread to think what is going to happen when we have to leave at the end of March.
Thanks to all for your prayers. She is thrilled when I read all the comments. I may not reply to them all, but rest assured that I read them and appreciate them more than I could ever say. Praying that tomorrow will be better for our dearest V!!
