No more shots! Yep - I don't have to give Kevin any more shots because the doctor discontinued his blood thinner. YAY!!! Apparently it's not as necessary when you are up and moving around more. Let me tell ya - he was so excited to hear that!
We are also reducing his dose of pain medication because he only seems to be in pain when he yawns. We are taking it down by 2/3 and I am hoping it's enough. We may actually switch just to something like Tylenol instead, but I need to research the long term side effects of all of the over the counter meds first.
And I should tell you that Kevin was very upset to have to go back to the hospital today. He was not too happy and didn't do much in the way of therapy. I don't know if he was just depressed about being there or if he has some kind of little bug that is making him tired, but he has been sleeping a lot since yesterday. I guess I'll see what tomorrow brings.
I als checked out of The Fisher House today. I sure appreciate that that was available to us, but I hope I never have to go back to that type of environment ever again. I am just not into the whole communal living thing. I just require too much alone time, I guess.
And I am nearly done getting all of Kevin's things out of his hospital room too. I take a load down to the car every time I leave so that I don't have to kill myself doing it all at once. It's just amazing how much stuff a person can acquire over eleven months, isn't it?
First 2 from the Nov kit!
