Home Again

I must apologize.  Peyton wound up in the hospital overnight when her GJ tube came out last Sunday evening.  I had said that they weren't sure (at the time) if it could even be replaced on Monday, being that it was Labor Day.  Well, after much waiting...and more waiting...they finally decided it COULD be done.  She had a new GJ tube put in late Monday morning.  Then we waited...and waited...and waited...and then waited some more.  And then we waited and finally about 4 hours after the procedure, they finally got the orders to start her feeds up.  Then she had to be monitored for an hour.  THEN we got to come home.  We wound up getting home a little after 7pm on Monday.  INSANE.'s fixed.

It's been a relatively calm week since then.  Today Peyton finished up the antibiotics that the Pulmonary doctor put her on a couple weeks ago.  I don't see that the antibiotics did anything at all except give her horrible diarrhea.

Please pray for us, particularly this Sunday as we begin the further reduced nursing schedule of 40 hours a week.  I can't believe just a couple months ago we had 84 hours a week.  Medicaid will soon come to find out what a horrible mistake they made when she starts winding up back in and out of the hospital with regularity.  Sigh.

That's about all the news here for now.
