Nursing a chore… November 16, 2009

Posted by loz121 in Uncategorized.

Every Monday since I got the new button PEG i have to get up early to see the nurse that comes and changes the water in the balloon in the PEG which has to be done due to the saline water evaporating. The nurse is teaching my mum how to do the saline water so that she can do it and the nurses dont have to come so often which i will be glad because every time they come round they make me think i’m this ill person which I’m not where my mum and the nurse get ov bags of medical stuff that mum keeps. Things like the water syringes and the creams and the tubes for my PEG. it can feel a bit endless sometimes but I know the nurses are only for a short time. Im not looking forward to getting my PEG changed after Christmas in January. The nurses assure me it’s not as bad as having the tube PEG out (which by the way was horrendous) I’ll believe it when it’s done ha ha. I’m glad to get out of the house after christmas too when I get to go back to my volunteering. I hope Christmas doesn’t take it’s toll on me and I want the holidays to last!

For now I’m keeping busy with the tapestry!
