Something's definetly not setting well with Rick today. I'm afraid his c-diff may be back (or was never completely cured) because he's had several bouts of diarrhea today. I don't even know what to say...my frustration level is just about as high as it could get. It's just not fair to see him turn things around and see him making progress, and then something sets him back again. He was actually scheduled to get in the pool today, but we had to scratch that! The lab results should be back sometime this evening and hopefully we can start medicine tonight for whatever it is. I feel like we almost wasted today. He didn't make it to one PT session, he slept through one OT session and speech therapy. After he woke up from the OT session, Julia was nice enough to spend an extra 20 minutes with him, and she said, "okay Rick, now I've got to go, but we'll pick up where we left off tomorrow, okay?" and he nodded his head yes. And he did get fitted for his new dynasplint for his left arm, so no more casting. He'll wear the arm splint at night only and will be able to use his left arm during the day. So, I guess not all was lost, but I was so hopeful after the great weekend we had.
Hope everyone had a better Monday than we did, and hope y'all thank God if you had a boring day...boring is good!
And as Rhett Butler (and Sherry) would say, "Scarlett, tomorrow's another day."
