Our First Night “Alone”

by on January 13, 2011

Our beloved Sandra left a few hours ago.  As you can imagine, it was an emotional goodbye on all sides.  Satomi’s Mom cried and profusely thanked Sandra for her help.

It’s now 11:15pm and I miss her immensely.  At 10:00pm, I gave Satomi a cocktail of medicine similar to last night.  It’s not working and Satomi’s restless, tossing, and turning.  Luckily she’s not in pain.  

I bumped up the Ambien dose to maximum.  The Oxycodone and Decadron are already maxed out.  If things continue to suck, I can give her another Adavan and as a last resort, Haldol.  She’s been so lucid during the day, I don’t want to give it but her and our sanity are at risk here.

Satomi’s Mom didn’t want me to give her the extra dose of Ambien.  I had to explain that this was less than usual and what could occur if these were not given.  I really hope I can calm Satomi down.  I don’t think her Mom can bear the sight of what happens if I don’t.

We’ll just have to wait and see.

Midnight Update:  It looks like she’s finally sleeping.  Hopefully I don’t jinx it but I hear snoring and she hasn’t moved for nearly 30 minutes.  Cross your fingers!!
