White Out

09 February 2013 | Kingston
Jennifer-cold


I got Al home by 1 p.m. yesterday. Due to near white out conditions and very bad road conditions we came home by cab. Al is very glad to be home and settled it. At times from out 9th floor apartment you could not see a thing. It was kind of cool actually. The pharmacy stopped their delivery service yesterday due to road conditions so I took a cab to and fro to get the new prescriptions.
Home physiotherapy will start on Monday and today the home care nurse will come in to check on us and check Al’s catheter. I had asked for and have been given more home services and nursing care this time around to hopefully prevent another septic situation.

We are to hear this week from Urology as to what the next steps are. There is a bit of a discrepancy on how long Al needs the warfarin for the lung clots and when surgery can safely be done. Internal medicine says 6 months, Urology may think 4 months. I’m not the doctor but my logic tells me that surgery and eliminating further sepsis trumps the chances of a bleed. Al’s sepsis on Jan 2nd had him near death. Again, I am no doctor and have no idea of what percentage of risk there is of a bleed with his prostate surgery. I guess time will tell.

In the short term we will revel in this window of good health and enjoy the good days.
