Ella came home today!! It's been a whirlwind couple of days preparing for her discharge. At 3pm today we took her off of her TPN fluids (she cycles off fluids completely for 4 hrs a day) and brought her home!
We had about 2 hours at home before my nursing lessons began. It took 2 hours with the home health care nurse for me to get the additives added to her fluids and hang them on her new home pump/pole. That part was good, until it got overwhelming (exhausting). It will just take practice, which I'll get as this will be part of our daily routine.
Mom came Tuesday and I'm so glad she is here. It will take two people when I have to be nurse.
The dogs are doing great with her. They love her!! They are adjusting to the pole when we brought that out, but they can't get enough of Ella!
So many more details but Ella is sleeping and I should try to sleep before her 12am feed. Hopefully I will have time & energy to capture the details here in writing tomorrow.
