Those meds were not holding the pain at bay so Ken went down to the doc's office last Wed. when his day was here in town. The receptionist tried to put him off telling him to call the main office and talk to a nurse in Birmingham Al. Ken told her that wouldn't do a bit of good, the doc needed to do something about her pain. They tried to keep putting him off but Ken told them he was parking himself in the office until closing time and would follow the doc to his car because he WAS going to see him. Well they did a couple more patients and called him. The doc was very nice to him and did up her pain med from one tablet every 4 hours to 2 tablets every 4 hours which seem to help a lot.
It takes the IV antibiotics close to three hours to run. This has to be done twice a day which makes it rough on an old woman like me to have to stay up late getting through with it and on her also. They came out yesterday AM at almost 10:00 to do blood work because they were going to be off today. Well it has to be 12 hours since her last IV so that got us started late yesterday morning and then finishing last last night. Takes it's toil on old and sick folks not getting much sleep. I think she is doing some better or the pain meds are helping one. Her temp is not as high as it was when she came home.
Ken has been helping all he could doing part of the cooking and all the grocery shopping for us then trying to keep the fast growing grass cut. It has been raining a lot and that grass runs away. Bless his heart he has to cut a few rounds and rest.
Thanks again for your wonderful prayers, good thoughts and comments.
We planted some wild flower seed in the early spring and a few of them are blooming plus some of the volunteer flowers from last season have come up and have just started blooming. Everything is not in full bloom yet.
I have no idea what these flowers are. One looks kinda like a snapdragon but is not. They are planted close to the house so I don't have far to walk to take a picture LOL. You can see the sun was shining brightly at this time.
I think this might be some sort of Poppie.
Have a blessed Memorial Day everyone and stay safe. Helen and Family.
