Going a little postal....

Yah, that was me this morning when the CNA came in at 6 am to take Kyle's vital signs. I would like to state for the record a few things before you judge me...

  1. Kyle is hooked up to a cardiac and oxygen saturation monitor 24 hours a day
  2. I had just gotten him back to sleep after he was stuck for a sugar check
  3. He was woken up 5 times in the middle of the night for numerous reason, including our infant roommate crying on and off all night. His IV ringing off 4 or 5 times (I lost count) and the surgical team coming in at 5 am to check his incision site.
  4. She came in flipped on a light and just assumed waking him up was a good idea
  5. All to get a temperature check (I am at this point laying in bed with him because he flipped out the last time they woke him up because he was exhausted!) So I would know if his temp was high.

I will say it was not one of my brighter moments....but at his point I'm tired, he's tired, we are sad, miss our kids, miss our home...jeez I think we even miss the dog! ;)

Looks like we will start feeds today into his belly....makes me nervous and a little sick to my stomach! I'll update the meantime I swear to behave myself today!

Don't be so hard on yourself! I'm sure she understands... and quite frankly if she doesn't, oh well! Kyle and your rest is more important!

I will be keeping you guys in my thoughts today and hoping that feeds goes well.

Oh girl, I had the same moment the other night! Needless to say, I got my point across in a not so nice way and the lady didn't turn the light on again for the rest of the night. Still thinking about you guys. Praying feeds go well!

I am so sorry, it never occured to me that you don't have a private room:( That makes resting more complicated, I'm sure.
And I don't understand them waking him up just for a temp,Kyle needs some rest to recover! I would have gone postal long ago...not too cute!
I hope the feeds go well, good luck.
