We had to do a early dressing change because the last one got goopy pretty fast. This time it took 3 hours but again no tears – not from Bernadette anyway. 🙂 Some of that time was just cleaning the area once the dressing was off. At one point I had to go upstairs to get a missing supply and Bernadette’s little voice followed me, “Don’t hurry back!” Even sick she still has a sense of humor. Thankfully, if it went well we won’t have to do another one until next Wednesday. We’re trying to get our hands on the same dressings they use at Canuck Place that came off so easily.
We’re all really hoping tomorrow is a better day. Life gets gloomy when our ray of sunshine is blocked by clouds of pain and suffering. Today’s silver lining: sorry Bruce, I’m still working on that one. How about the yummy pizza for dinner, provided by a very nice couple from our parish. Johanna said it was the best pizza she’d ever tasted. Tomorrow’s is easier. It’s American Thanksgiving and Marc has a four day weekend. That will be really really nice.
Jut wondering if your Palliative care nurse can’t make arrangements for you to get the correct dressings.
I found them very helpful in Saskatoon. Hugs to all
God’s Rainbow- Rainbows appear after mighty storms, when things look their very worst. Just when the skies are darkest grey, look for the rainbow first. The rainbow is a sign of God’s promise, that He will guide us through any storm. That He will see us through all our troubles, no matter what their form. When you feel battered by life’s storm, and you are filled with doubt and dismay; just remember God’s rainbow is coming…… It’s only a prayer away.
Thinking and praying for you all. Love Beatrice
