The doctor is playing with her diuretics again. Hopefully we will find a couple that everyone will like. Her potassium is low and she was positive over 200. Her weight is down to 5.08 kilos, but she was NPO (just IV fluids and meds) for half the day – for 2 days in a row. The doctor reiterated to me that she needs to gain weight. They have her up to 110 calories with the 30 KCal formula and the extra protein and the extra oil. It’ll come with time.
And I found out yesterday that Apria, the medical supply company we have been using, isn’t in network. Oops! So I have a hefty bill for that feeding pump, pulse ox, and oxygen tanks that have been sitting in my house since April not being used. Oh well – teach me to ask more questions!
