Hospital Adventure: Routine

Filed under: Forgot to pick a category — Carol @ 5:04 am

With the major procedures done, today was all about adjusting to the new routines.  Regular checks of his blood pressure and temperature, administration of the antibiotics and pain medications, checks by nurses and doctors, scheduled meals and the complicated logistics of restroom use. 

He passed the time between napping, watching TV and movies, listening to music, playing with some figures I brought from home, taking very slow wheelchair rides around the small unit.  

He seemed relaxed, generally comfortable and in good spirits.  There were no outbursts and no incidents of aggression.  Under the circumstances I don’t think I could really ask for more.
