A Cultured Life…

…stumbling through life with two beautiful daughters – often tripping, sometimes running!!

Day 106, T -8

on July 29, 2021

7/28 11.56 am CST

A good night considering ๐Ÿ™‚ Swati and I slept from 11.3p0 -430a till the first vitals. Over the many nights in the hospital, my best sleep is between 430am and 63- ish and today woke up at 720!! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ – this was a scramble because I wanted to be dressed and ready for rounds (the doctors coming by every morning). I got ready quickly and was loathe to wake Swati up; on hindsight bad decision ๐Ÿ™‚

Breakfast was late in coming to room – well past their 1 hr window ๐Ÿ™„ That set off a cascading series of events. Mercy, our nurse was kind enough to wait on the premeds till Swati had eaten breakfast. When she returned, breakfast was still not in. While prepping, everything happened all at once!!

The breakfast arrived, the patient technician for the bed and linen change,and the housekeeping staff for cleaning. While trying to let people do their jobs, I folded her blanket and comforter, cleared surfaces for them to be wiped down, cleared the floor to be swiffered, and encouraged Swati to eat one and a half tacos and down her Orange juice – All before my morning coffee ๐Ÿ˜‡

And just like that we settled down for Day 3 at MD Anderson/Day 2 ATG IV
