Home Again

Today we were released from the hospital. The STAT nurse put in a PICC line yesterday, it's like a more permanent IV so that we could take Nathan home on IV antibiotics that I give him. So today once they were sure the PICC was functioning they released him. It took a while to coordinate the home infusion supplies but once that was all figued out we were good to go.

Once we got home from the hospital the nurse came out to the house to drop off all the IV supplies and pumps. She came with a HUGE bos full of stuff, all just for 2 weeks. It's amazing everything we need for such a short period of time. I have to give him his last meds of the night at 10pm which isn't bad but it's 1 1/2 hours of meds total so it's going to take a while and I'm going to get to bed late but at least we're home.

Nathan was exhausted all evening. He has been really tired lately, I think it's been from not sleeping great in the hospital. So he was ready for bed tonight when we got home from Aunt Katherine's house.

The boys had a great time at Aunt Katherine's house. Trevor was very interesed in her wine collection and Nathan just wanted to just sit on the couch and watch PBS. The adults got to play some games while the kids played, it was a nice night.

Next week we're going to have a busy week with a Dr appt in Boston, one around here and we have to have the home nurse come in to change Nathan's PICC dressing. I better sleep when I can, these next two week are going to be quite sleep deprived!
