hospice



After talking with my hospice home health nurse, it's decided that I'm going to get TPN, hydration, and IV antibiotics from my apartment when she visits in addition to the blood draws, physical therapy, and personal care help. I'll also get remote monitoring of vital signs since I'm a "high hospitalization risk" patient or 'client'...whatever they want to call me. Then, I'm also going to get a volunteer that comes out to help me with other things around the apartment and takes me to chemo and stuff. That will be much needed. It's still a little embarrassing to me personally...just needing all of this extra help, but if it helps me get through this without having to move back home, so be it.
