Tomorrow we go to what's called a "clinic." It's scheduled every 3 months and it's the big one! We see everyone from the dietitian to the speech therapist to the social worker and a few more in between.
At the first clinic, my parents attended. 4 sets of ears are better than 2, they said. At times, I felt awkward for Luther; he was being poked and prodded in front of 3 sets of eyes. Mostly though, it was great to have them with us for the support.
This will be our third clinic at the VA. I have a list of questions: can they put him on some kind of sleep medication? his bony butt gives him no peace when he tries to sleep. any pain meds yet? his coughing is non-stop and to the point he gasps like a fish out of water -- what can we do for that? when is the hospital bed coming? Has he lost more weight?
Tomorrow will be an interesting day.
