No matter how much I try to ignore it here in bloggy-land, the fact remains that my little one has some medical issues.
To put it mildly.
Sometimes I forget what a big deal a liver transplant is. I think I do that on purpose. I've never been one to want to stand out in a crowd.
I like to stay home. Disappear into the background and live an average little life.
Yeah. We've blown way past that.
And now, a couple of weeks ago Alan came home from a hospital stay with a piece of medical equipment still installed in his body.
I guess it's not that unusual, but it has taken some getting used to.
After a couple of days of training from our wonderful home health nurse, I all-by-my-very-own-self administered IV antibiotics.
It is amazing the things you get used to and learn to live with. Thank goodness this was a short term thing. We finished 10 days of the antibiotic, and now we are half-way through a 10-day waiting period before Alan goes back to the hospital for surgery. He still has the PICC line, and I flush it once a day. Very sterile-ly. :) And the up-coming surgery? Well, I don't really like to think about that.
There are some things you just don't get used to.
