Today was a much better day for Jason, and (drum roll please) HE IS SLEEPING IN HIS OWN BED AGAIN! He got to come home from the hospital tonight, and though it was after 19:00 (7pm) when we did get home, it felt very good to do so. There is still a level of concern with the infections, and they are treating them with antibiotics, with them being administered via I.V. A nurse will be coming to the house tomorrow to go over the procedure, and make sure we don't have any questions, and I got to do the disconnect and line flush in the hospital tonight. I've seen it done so many times that I am comfortable with taking care of this. Jokingly I made a comment to the nurse that I was just about all the way to corpsman, and she said, "No, you're ahead of them, as the corpsmen don't get to touch these I.V. lines." I'll be doing it daily starting on Friday, this week, with the nurse coming in and doing it tomorrow, though I guess I could be doing it tomorrow if she wants me to.
Not much else going on today, other than a wound dressing change, and that looked good, from my perspective. There is a concern that the infection has gotten in a little deeper than we thought, but Jason is feeling pretty good right now, so we're not too worried about it right now. My main job, besides the meds and stuff, is to make sure Jason doesn't stay up in his wheelchair too much. I think that was a major contributor to this latest problem.
I'll be updating more tomorrow, but for now I think I'll be calling it a day - right after I give Jason his meds. Thank you, all for all your prayers and continued support.
