Went to Compton Hospice today....discussed meds.
We have a plan in place.
One of which is to measure the amount or morphine properly.
I have just been swigging out of the bottle, assuming that each swig is about 7.5 ml.
Well, I have learned that my mouth is small, and only contains about 4 mls.
So 2 issues here....I been taking less morphine that I though, taken less laxative that I thought. No wonder I am having problems! Lol!
Well, I have put a note book together logging what I take, and mention if I have increased the anti=sickness stuff.
All that I can say, is,
'How is a girl to know that she has a mouth smaller than she thought.....based on the amount of rubbish that comes out of it....verbally, that is. Lol!
Hey ho....start again.
I start 2 days a weeks at the Hospice starting next week, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
There is a possibility that I will be admitted just to level my pain meds, and make some changes,depends on my note book project, so lets hope that I get it right.
'Course, the other bit of good news is that Compton were looking for people to give some electric recliner chairs to, and I am one of the lucky ones. Based on the fact that I am having trouble sleeping, they are delivering it some time between now and Wednesday.
The furniture has been moved around to accommodate it...thanks Pete for coming to help.
I am so excited!
Keith came last evening, we had a nice evening meal at the table with Derek, Keith, Richard and me.....we haven't done this for ages, so that was good.
Today, Roxanne is taking Mum to the hospital for and emergency appointment to get her 'bloods' sorted.
Me and Keith are going for 'brunch with friends, then we will pick Roxanne up from Lleicester....(you know, the one in Wales)....Clearly, I mean Leicester.
From there, we are going to Banbury to see Phil and Dawn, Saturday to Huntingdon, then back here.
I am really looking forward to it!
I may not be able to blog until I gat back...Saturday evening or Sunday.
Thanks to you all for sticking with me for the last couple of years, and I really do hope that this is helping you as much as it helps me.
