Glad that's over
We are home now, got home late this afternoon. Glenn was discharged this morning and had to go straight over for his scheduled treatment, (which is in a building adjacent to the hospital). The oncologist who discharged him wanted him to get right over for his treatment, even though Glenn's appointment was for later. But when we got there, the Dr.s were all gone to lunch so we were told to go get something to eat and come back. Instead we went to the nephrologist's office to see if we could see him. Luckily for us, it was a slow day there and we did get to see him. We needed to talk to him about managing this edema that keeps happening because the oncologists take Glenn off of all his diuretics because they are not good for the kidneys. So anyway, we got to see him and get that dealt with, then went back for the treatment. When my mind isn't so foggy I'll try to explain all that about the edema/kidney problem. But right now I am heading to my bed. I've missed it so much this week. I'm grateful that I am allowed to stay with Glenn the entire time he is in the hospital and that they provide a recliner for me to sleep in. But anyone who has slept in those recliners at a hospital knows it's just about impossible to stay comfortable in any position in those chairs for any length of time. I'm not complaining, honestly, just glad to be back to my own bed. So g'nite again and to everyone who has been keeping up with us, praying for us, sending encouraging, (and funny) messages, we thank you all so very much.
