Gallon of Milk

by on January 3, 2011

It’s my first day back at work and I think I’m getting an ulcer.  I feel like I drank a gallon of milk.  All you lactose intolerant folks out there know what I’m talking about.

I composed an instruction “packet” for Satomi’s Mom to administer her medications.  It’s full of pictures and arrows and simple language.  At first glance, the packet seems to be very condescending but I have been told that it’s what’s necessary to minimize confusion.  I pre-filled her pill-box so it should be easy.

The tricky part will be her changing medications.  The packet I put together is only good for today.

Satomi’s out of Darvocet so we’ll first try Tylenol with Codeine and then Vicodin if necessary.  We’re also going to start weaning her off of Decadron.  It’s going to take weeks.  Satomi’s anti-seizure medication will be changing too once we get some blood test results back.  It is fair to say that the type and number of pills are changing daily. 

I plan to make a new “packet” whenever there’s a change but we all know “change” breeds mistakes.

I have to go to the bathroom…
