Just a quick post because I know so many of you are wondering how things are going now that we are home. We got home yesterday shortly after 2pm. Hospice arrived at our home around 1130am to start getting everything organized for Stefan’s arrival. They didn’t leave our home until 8pm. It was a very long day, but the ladies who were with us yesterday were amazing. We met two nurses and a social worker, and I was so impressed. Thankfully, we had dinner provided because it was pretty much a circus at the house. So, thank you to our church for organizing that, and thank you to the friend who provided it.
The overnight was pretty rough. Stef was extremely agitated and anxious. Our church has also provided us with people to sit with him overnight. We decided to not use that last night because Stef was so worked up and not feeling well. Not our best decision. Anyway, he also got sick and started vomiting and also developed a fever of 102. Thankfully, hospice called first thing this morning and the nurse who has our case came out and met with us this morning. Hospice is trying their best to manage everything. Dr. Martin also called the house to see how the night had gone. He continues to amaze me. So, hopefully, tonight will be quieter and more restful. And we are having people come in and sit with Stef tonight.
I also wanted to thank a special friend of mine-Melanie. She has done so many little things to help out. She has scheduled meetings, made phone calls, picked my kids up from school, taken them to get haircuts, and much more. Thanks, Mel. You’re the best!!
There are many others who have helped out as well. I so appreciate it all.
