Nicole now ill as well. Same bug as the other two. So i called my mum to bring round supplies ie milk, calpol and neurofen (i should buy shares in the last two items), and have set up a new meds timing sheet on the fridge door. Because i get easily confused.
I am hoping that i wont go down with this at all, as Monday is our 8year wedding anniversary. And Peter is still on very soft foods, so it looks like out meal will consist of...
And i am not complaining, yum yum.
And how is the young man himself? He is doing well, has been on the exercise bike now. He does still have his feeding tube in, and also a new machine is being used. If you are of a squeamish nature then please do not read ahead.
Where Peters LVAD was, there are now two big holes leading to the diaphragm. They need to get these to close on their own without leaving any infection. When they removed the LVAD they packed the holes for a couple of days, then removed the wadding and bagged them to let the blood etc drain off. Yesterday then started using the vac pack to draw the gunge and stuff off and encourgae it to close up. They pack the wholes with foamy stuff, Peter says they pack it right up and it hurts. then they attach the pump and it sucks all the nasty stuff out. It will be used for about 3 weeks.
