Another Good Week

Arabella is doing so well.  I am so pleased.  I am so thankful!

To those of you with nursing – we are supposed to have almost 24/7 coverage.  I am about ready to tell the nursing company to take a hike.  From what I’ve been told they are all about the same.  They promise the moon and just don’t or can’t deliver.  At what point do you say – enough, I’m done.  It’s not like we can’t take care of Bell – we can, we do.  It’s the uncertainty of our lives and schedule that is making me nuts.  Advice?

Sorry, Shel. Our nurses always showed up for mom, but she had a lot fewer hours of care. I wish I could make a recommendation.

We only have nurses when we are working so I'm not much help. Overall I've been pretty pleased but at times I wish I could choose which nurse comes!

While you still have a nurse I think you should venture out on your own in the car with Bella. That way you will have a nurse with you in case something goes wrong and that will be a huge stepping stone. And with Bella being so much more stable I think it would be the perfect time to try it out even if it is just around the block.

Dear Anonymous - I really like your idea. We have been trying to find a good time to put her in the car and go for a small drive. hasn't happened yet. Maybe this week.
