The last couple of days have been a little rough. Let me re-phrase that...the last couple of NIGHTS have been a little rough, which makes for rough days. Trent has been up a lot at night, with pain, bathroom trips, IV med changes, and bad dreams. He has a hard time getting to sleep. He can't seem to make his mind shut down and let him rest. Unfortunately that means I am up a lot a night too. Two sleep deprived people don't make for a very effective team during the day. We are EXHAUSTED!!!!
Trent is going so stir crazy. I don't have time to sit with him all day long because I am taking care of kids and trying to work full time. So that means Trent spends some time alone just hanging out. For most of us that sounds HEAVENLY! :) But for Trent, it is making him crazy. I bought him a sketch pad, pencils, and oil pastels today so he could do something while he is resting. Hopefully this will help snap him out of his funk. I am hoping to get him outside tomorrow, at least for a minute, so he can get some fresh air. That might wake him up a little bit.
We ran out of pain meds today so I called the doc only to find out I have to physically hold the paper prescription to get it filled at the pharmacy. So Michael, our patient care coordinator made a trip to Ogden to meet me and give me the script. I am sure that was above and beyond his job description and I am so thankful he did that for us! He has been awesome. He has a nice soft voice and always knows when to say something and when to just lay a hand on your back and wait for you. I have been really impressed with him. Another reason it is good to be at the Hunstman!
