We're looking at Wednesday for possible discharge date. The arm looks horrible, but he is feeling better. Temps are still going up - but not as high. His highest temp today was 100.1. His arm is now encased in lots of gauze and pads and he has to keep it upright in a sling. Guess it's not too uncomfortable as he slept with it like that last night and had a decent night's sleep. His appetite still isn't too good, but it's getting better.
The bad news? We're looking at a possible three to four weeks of outpatient treatment. And that also means three to four week of unemployment. AND, (there's always something else, isn't there?) the antibiotics we need have to come directly from the company itself - and you pay up front.
I'm tired. My daughter and I went to the hospital this morning, then came home. I cleaned house because I couldn't stand it anymore, and then took a well-deserved nap. We went back to the hospital this evening.
I'm trying to get all the financial paperwork rounded up. Looks like the VA might be one source of help. We'll see what happens.
I'll be back to work tomorrow and maybe throwing myself into the job will help me forget about some of this stuff for awhile! I'll go over to the hospital for lunch with hubby and probably be making lots of phone calls. :-)
Thanks for all your good thoughts and prayers.
