Patience is definitely something that has been needed in this first week of the new year.
Once again, we have found ourselves losing yet another 40-hour-a-week nurse. She was going to be moving out of state soon, but certain events hastened her departure from her assignment with Peyton. I don't need to go into detail, but the level of professionalism of some home nurses just astounds me sometimes. We are still trying to figure things out. We have one 40 hour nurse, but she is temporary. She travels, so is probably only going to be around a few months. We have a temporary 40 hour nurse who is assigned to another patient who is hospitalized right now. Everything is temporary, it seems.
Peyton is still having a great deal of difficulty with her chronic pain. Mornings are particularly bad. On the whole, I think it has improved a little since I wrote last, but it's still bad at times. Again...patience. Patience to endure this season.
As you can see, this blog is being populated with past stories from CaringBridge which I have been copying and pasting. I want to have the entire CaringBridge log of entries copied over to this blog. I've only got about 300 more posts to transfer! Patience!! I've updated the design to make it a little more appealing. It's temporary, but I still wanted it to look nicer! I'm trying to figure out the perfect name for this blog. If you have any suggestions, I am all ears!
Thanks for bearing with me during blog construction!
