Everyone was shocked to hear that they would send my dad home from the hospital yesterday, after lunch. My sister, Marita, came to town from Spokane and she and I were out having coffee with my friend when mom called to say they needed a ride home. We drove down to the hospital, and my brother Brian was there with 3 of his boys (he has 7 kids). We all had a merry lunch in the cafeteria, while my dad had his in his room. Then, we drove my folks home.
My dad had not slept at all during the day in his hospital room, but dropped off to sleep as soon as he hit the easy chair in his home. I'm not sure that if it was because of feeling relaxed, or being off the oxygen and feeling so tired again. I think we should talk to his doctors about putting him on oxygen for a while.
My dad is on blood thinners (coumadin)...in fact, he has to inject himself daily. My mom went to pick up his week's supply of it at the drug store and was SHOCKED to find that her co-pay was $70. He has to be on injectable coumadin for a month.
