In memory of Adam Horn who at 22 lost his battle with Leukaemia but showed us all a thing or two about how to live life to the full.. Now forever young....
Adam has been steadily improving mentally over the past few days and since hisvisit from Marc Woods, he now realises that there shouldn't be much that hecan't do; he'll just need to adjust how he does things.The pain is being controlled better now, albeit that he seems to havedeveloped a liking for industrial doses of morphine so we'll have anotherissue to deal with when he comes off it.The current plan is to try to get him of the IV painkiller Monday with a viewto returning him to oral painkillers which then means there is little stoppinghim leaving hospital for home.We've yet to fathom quite how we'll deal with him at home from a logisticspoint of view but then, not having any idea of what or how I'm gonna dosomething has never stopped me from having a go in the past! (Ask some of ourclients!)The vac pump was found as has been steadily whirring away at his right foot,this adds to the cacophony of noise on the ward and makes sleeping at nightsan ever more difficult thing, reckon I'm going to try sidelining some of hismorphine to see if that helps.His mood is so much better now and he is joking about things again, he hasbeen with the physios a few times and went down to the gym in the wheelchairyesterday to do some exercises. He enjoyed this no end albeit that it tiredhim out big time!So, with luck we'll get him home soon and then I guess the fun will start allover again watch this space.Love to allColin
Brilliant idea, and great that you'll be able to see all the comments Ad. Hope the physio's going okay - give those nurses hell!!
