My update from this morning about Day 4 of homecare IV meds, Life and more
Supplies came FINALLY!! I will do a full update and info blog tomorrow about how everything is done. I wanted to do my dressing change video but it’s too late and I was over my initial 24hrs!!! It will need done in 7 days. So not this last time I was on homecare but the time before when we still lived in the city and I had my final fuck this moment, I taught David (my husband) how to do it when it needed fixed! I allow him to do it for numerous reasons:
- As stated above, my experience with home nurses and their inability to properly change and place a new dressing is beyond my patience level at this point in my life. Too many horror stories or needing to redo it immediately after because they don’t listen than I care to count.
- He has been tattooing for over 25yrs. He’s blood born pathogen certified and because of that he understands the IMPORTANCE of needing things to be and remain sterile.
- I haven’t found anything this man cannot do! Having had so my picc lines, I could do it myself if it truly came down to it. So I knew explaining things step by step through the entire process he could handle it and I trust him with my life.
I now have a fresh clean dressing and I can start my meds at 11pm. Yes I am still in pain but I am managing it, sorta. See everyone tomorrow morning for a full update. 💜
