So much for refining the routine yesterday…
In order to accommodate therapy coming in the afternoon (sometime between 2:00 – 4:00-ish), I was making slight adjustments all morning. The intent was, with enough changes, I could create a window of time for this therapy while being flexible to the non-specific arrival time.
Well, you probably guessed it by now. The therapy session was a no go. Not fault of the therapist, but she called to advise sessions were not approved. As it turns out, a hospital visit somehow terminates therapy and the whole process needs reinstated. Ugh!
I received an email from the Home Nursing Agency advising me a manufacturer of one of Ryan’s medicines issued a recall. A recall?!? What the hell? This medicine was five times higher in dosage than packaged! Here’s what the FDA had to say about it:
“The mislabeling represents a ‘potential significant health hazard’ and warned that an overdose could cause toxicity, which can result in tremors, dizziness, nervousness, headaches, seizures, angina, high blood pressure, low potassium, heart rates of up to 200 beats per minute, and death.”
Okay, that grabbed my attention in a big way. So, on to tracking down the lot numbers and comparing those against our supply.
…And then the feeding pump became temperamental. It wouldn’t hold a charge and the pump would randomly shut off. The supply company said they would be out to replace it between 1:00 PM and 2:00 PM. True to form, they came at 8:30 PM.
My three day search for Ryan’s tennis shoes continued to be unsuccessful. Good news though, I found them this morning when I wasn’t looking. It was probably one of the last places I would have thought.
The positive is, from Ryan’s care vantage, nothing changed. Thankfully, he maintained good body temperatures and other vitals throughout the day yesterday.
Today has started off without a hitch…
