I woke today, after having a strange dream about lymph fluid and swelling on the left side of my body and down into my left leg, almost to my foot. And it was discolored, a dark red. I woke with a strange disorientation of "why is my body doing that??" And then the alarm went off to get up to go to work.
We had a fairly good day today, with a flurry of discharges that lasted a couple of hours in the early afternoon, and the ones laboring hadn't delivered yet. So we ended up staffing down, which was ok. I am saturated with the information Dan and I have been presented with the last couple of days, and at times feel like I want to shut down to be able to process it all. I had an opportunity to Google Taxol vs. Taxotere, and looked through a few of the results. What scary drugs. I have yet to look up the cytoxin. The 12 1/2 hour shift wound to a close, and I clocked out, changed my clothes, and headed over to the nursing home.
Mom was in the geri chair waiting for me, and we had to wait our turn for the bathroom. I got her washed up and tucked in and headed home in the misty fog. It looks like we lost a lot of the snow today.
Daniel was waiting for me, we chatted about our day, and plans for the next few days. While he folded a load of laundry, I took the 3 foot artificial tree from the box and shaped the branches. Wa La!!! Tree's up!! We're ready!!
Thank you for reading, I'll write again.
