greetings to all women who are mothers to all. my brother's wife maria is a first time mom!
thomas was seen by the hospice doctor for an initial intake evaluation. he is a retired neurosurgeon. he will evaluate thomas' meds to see what is actually still needed and what is superfluous. we already were able to stop the daily subcutaneous stomach injections.
thomas is still getting a fever from some infection. paraplegia presents many curious ongoing issues. normally we would have gone by ambulance and spent many hours in the ER. hospice really is a portable urgent care organization that comes to the patient. how grateful we are that the fever was handled at home instead of the hospital.
thomas never complains. takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'.
we have retained our cell phone numbers and have added a land line because verizon is unreliable in the area around our neighborhood. #is 704-395-2969.
