We did it! Last night was our second night. I will admit it was a little stressful on Wednesday night. We have spent so long doing this in a small hospital room. Everything has its own place and is easy to get to and access. I did find a spot for everything and label all of the drawers and boxes here at home — but it was just different. When I went to add heparin to the bag I didn’t have the space I normally did. I had to move the blood pressure cuff and other items that were now in the way. When I went to get in my nicely labeled drawers to get tape/masks/gloves/bandages/syringe the tubes from the dialysate were hanging down in my way. There was just a lot to wrap our heads around. At one point Jamey was laughing at my frustration and he said, “YOU TOOK A VOW!!” LOL. Yup, That is what I deal with on a daily basis. 😛
He made it through the first night but he woke up with 3 of the 4 drains. So he was sleeping in 2 hour increments. Last night he slept through the first 3 drains. Woo Hoo!!!! He woke up on the 4th/last one. We are really hoping that his body will just adjust and he can sleep through the whole process.
