Tomorrow we might get to come home! Yeah! My sister did not like my last blog so I honored her and took it down. Hopefully not to many people read it. Let's just say Gary cannot have solid food. NONE. None whatsoever. They were talking about taking the IV out but we have meds to run tomorrow so we can't. I practiced placing his G tube this morning. It was quite a busy morning. We both did well. I did better than he did. But I was able to get the tube down just fine. I am growing tiresome of the hospital. It has been very busy this week. I am not use to the crowds because we always have been here on the weekend.
Gary is showing signs of his strength improving here and there. His speech has deteriorated but we can still make out what he is saying. This afternoon I will be getting more training with the G-tube and working the pump. They are setting up phyiscal therapy and speech therapy in Kent so that will be nice. Another swallow study is set for 3 weeks from now. Gary did fall a couple times. We are trying to keep him up and moving. We need him to know that he can still walk and do things although it is difficult. They put him on a few new medications. Paquienal given to malaria patients. It was the one medicine one of the attending thought he was already on. Hmmmmm. He is getting cytoxin and methotrexate. I am wore out. But I also am not the one having needles poked in my arm and having tubes shoved down my nose and in to my stomach. The swelling in Gary's legs look so GOOD. I can see his little legs finally. I think they look too small but time will tell.
