Another day, another nurse, another physical therapist.......................
I must say I never know what a day is going to look like ahead of time. I am learning to "roll with the punches" and realize that my schedule is just that MY schedule, not anyone elses :-)!
Yesterday, I was going to run to Costco in the AM real quick, come home, and then head to work for a couple hours, but between the nurse and the physical therapist that kept changing what time they were coming - by 5:15 Em and I were just heading to Costco.
Nathan got ALL the rest of his staples out and that left only the stitches in his left arm and left knee UNTIL dad got home and he took the stitches out of the arm............NOW, don't get all excited (like I did ), the Dr. was going to take them out on Tuesday, but Nathan was too worn out and needed to get home and out of the wheelchair, so Dad just took care of that. I hope he plans on going with me to Harborview next Wednesday so he can explain himself! I'm a rule follower - I did not do this!!!
The physical therapist told Nathan that he needs to be up in the wheelchair for 2-3 times a day for a minimum of 30 min. We have not been doing this. He's been up once a day (one day not at all) and not for very long. So today we will ramp it up a bit (no pun intended :-). Pray for Nathan as we work on this. He gets light headed and he starts to hurt. Think about sitting on a repaired pelvis, hip, tailbone, etc............................doesn't sound like a party to me.
This afternoon Em and I are heading to Spokane to bring Brandon home - I am so excited to see him and have him home for the summer.
Pray that things go smoothly while I am gone.
The LORD is good to all, and HIS mercy is over all that HE has made!
