She spent most of the day sleeping and so it was a quiet day. My hope is that they will figure out what is going on with the infection as they took more blood and had sent it off to get more tests done. Colleen had not eaten well for a couple of days and they were concerned about this aspect of her health and recovery. Because she was not eating so they had kept the tube through her nose to feed her at night, so she would get the proper amount of nutrition.
A young man probably in his 20's was allowed out only with a male nurse with him at all times, another man in his 40's who appeared to be frustrated with his lack of freedom, he wanted to go home. His short term memory was not good as every time he saw Colleen, he asked who she was.
I was finding it hard to deal with for what I saw were more steps back then more steps forward. I was fortunate that I had people hat I could talk to both here in Australia and back home.
Having a support group is important for caregivers. With the ability to take a small break (going out to dinner with friends, watching a Cricket game, or just relaxing) from the tension has allowed me to keep my sanity and to take care of myself, so I can be there for Colleen.
