Just checking in with a catch up on our hospice at home situation. Steve had major seizures late afternoon and evening yesterday, he was unconscious for twenty minutes or so and had a rattle. I thought it was *the rattle*- you know the one-so that was a bad bad time. Irony is -we have been having some great quality time these last couple of weeks and he has been walking short distances and getting stronger each day.
He had just chided me over making him use the wheelchair for looking at work that is being done on the house. Odd the things we think- I thought after -did I push the wheelchair too hard over the door threshold to start the seizures off? Yes I know its not logical or I really didn't but somehow the question keeps popping into my head! I should know better really- first rule of cancer support therapy is don't do the woulda coulda shoulda thinking...somehow though...it still pops through.
Hospice seem to have him in some sort of holding pattern til Monday when usual doctor and nurse team on duty, as Steve managed to start this on a Friday -tranquilizers broken out of the *comfort pack* is all they have come up with so far. Is it me- or is this usual? I would have thought a change of meds could be achieved over a weekend?
Kind thoughts to you all and Happy Mothers Day- as a Brit -I celebrated Mothering Sunday a month before Easter and is a little different than here in the USA.
