Well I think that the syringe pump was a great success - except for at 5.30am this morning when its alarm went off and wouldn't stop. I think I had turned over in my sleep and somehow dislodged the syringe a little. Poor Nathan had to call the District Nurse again - but she soon came and fixed it. A quick reset - and a lot more paperwork and we were able to go back to sleep! It was one of the best nights we've had recently.
So I haven't been sick since they attached me to this - and as a result I've actually eaten a bit of food. I had some Slimfast for breakfast - banana flavour! Yes I know it's for slimming and I'm not supposed to be doing that - but it is a meal in a glass and goes down quite easily.
Then I had cornflakes for lunch and a cup of tea, and tonight |I've actually had pizza and some of Laura's delicious chocolate banana pecan cake. Yummy. It's all about the banana it seems :-)
What a gorgeous day too! We went off to the hospital around 11.30 - went in for my appointment at 11.50 and I was out in 7 minutes! All very quick and efficient. Then we opened the patio doors at home and llet the sunshine in. Another DN came to change my syringe - to last another 24 hours, so I will have to be careful how I sleep tonight!
