Kendall did better today. We should be going home tomorrow. Our Endo. said he is fine sending us home not 100% because he believes its easier to get better at home. I love him. He is a great Dr.
Speaking of great Dr.'s...this week at Cooks we have met plenty. Our stay was as good as it could have been given our circumstances. The nurses both during the day and through the night have been great. (and trust me, I'm the first to say when they aren't.) Even the NP who I haven't exactly gotten along with in the past went above and beyond today. She actually hugged both Justin and I when she left this evening and told us to hang in there and that we were doing a great job. So I guess I have to give her a second chance too!
While there were good Dr's there was one who left me completely dumb-founded. She was the pediatrician (I guess) on staff at the hospital. She was young and nice enough, but she recommended Justin and I take Kendall to a Palliative Care Dr. (in case you don't know what that is, its like a Hospice Dr...yeah.) I just kind of looked at her as the blood rushed away from my head and calmly said "uh, yeah, I know what it is, and um, no." We are so not there yet. At all. And while her intentions were good I'm sure, I felt like punching her. So, no, we will not be adding a Palliative Care Dr. to our list. I don't have time for any more appointments anyway!!!!
The Home Health agency will be meeting us at our home tomorrow (assuming we get to go home tomorrow.) I have loads of things to do and I'm sure the day will be stressful, but we'll figure it out.
Oh, and also, I have to say that my husband is an amazing man. Even though he doesn't wake up in the middle of the night or the morning as well as I do, he's the best. He has taken this whole week in stride. Remaining calm and as always the voice of reason. He's holding our precious baby girl in the rocker right now and she seems pretty content (knock on wood) Kendall is lucky to have such a loving, devoted father who stands strong even amidst the toughest situations. He's made up the best songs and read Dr. Seuss books to her at least a hundred times this week.
We are blessed.
