Vic’s arm is very painful. The antibiotics have not started working yet. Dr Sue will come and see her tomorrow morning, and we will then decide whether it warrants hospitalization. Obviously Vic need intravenous antibiotics and her tissue is too poor….
Tonight Vic had one of her worst vomiting spells yet. It happened after 02:00am and her dinner of 7.30pm had not digested yet. It is obvious that the oral antibiotics are not being absorbed.
Vic was very tired today, but insisted on going with Jon-Daniel to the orthodontist. In years to come will he remember that his mommy was with him when he heard his orthodontic treatment ends on the 1st of February at 09:15am?
My sister phoned tonight. She categorically told me that I have no business injecting Vic. Nurses go to College for 4 or 5 years so they know what they are doing…. I did not even bother to explain that it is the Hospice site that is bad… My two sites are only in the beginning stages of going septic… I wonder whether she remembered that Vic has sepsis in her spine and abdomen…
The pethidine has kicked in. My child is in a pain-free sleep. I will now try to sleep. Tomorrow may be a rough day.
