I brought Lisa home Wednesday evening and we met with Angela Hospice to get her setup with the PCA at home. The PCA enables her to self medicate through her IV if she is feeling any pain. That works well at the hospital so we are hopeful that she’ll be more comfortable with it. Once she was at the hospital and a number of things were done to address her pain she felt much better. On Monday Lisa had platelets and red cells, and after she was admitted she was put on the PCA, increased steroid, increased pain meds, Ritalin and IV fluids. Tuesday she was all go at the hospital with only a brief nap. Wednesday she spent some time in the craft room and we walked down to the café for lunch. Thursday I walked, Lisa rode in the jogger/stroller, to McDonald’s. It was about 80 degrees. After we got back home she took a long nap and woke for dinner and another walk in the jogger. Only time will tell if her pain is under control but she seems better that she was last weekend. Here she is pictured with a new frog that Aunt Paula sent along with a box of other goodies. Have a great weekend.
