I had no sooner posted that the ventilator had finally been removed from Craig when we learned that it needed to be re-inserted because he was having difficulty clearing some chest congestion and his breathing was generally laboured.
Nevertheless, yesterday the news was that his left hand had shown some signs of life. Indeed he had squeezed a nurse’s hand quite forcefully with it.
We’re taking the news as it comes, not trying to read too, too much into it as it seems to go up and down each day. I am continuing to stay with Mom, which helps to pass the time for both of us.
I am either going to have to go home for a few days next week, to get my $3500 in monthly prescriptions refilled, or else one of the pharmacies in Perth is going to hit pay-dirt with my insurance company!
