Hospital Day # Last

Today is the last day at the hospital, thank god. Courtney feels a lot better today than yesterday. The doc prescribed her a sleeping pill last night to help her rest, and she got a solid 9 or 10 hours of sleep, then a nap for a couple of hours. I think she may be caught up on her sleep finally.

Doc Edwards just came in to talk to us. He wrote Courtney a scrip for Dilaudid in pill form, since the demerrol wasn't working as well as she would have liked. He recommended we call around to make sure the pharmacy had the pill before going, since it is apparently rare. I found the drug at the Walgreens on the corner of Blanding and Wells.

He said he was going to have the nurse give Re a Dilaudid pill to see if it worked, and if so, send her home. I can't wait to be home.

We had a really irritating ACP today. He came in and woke us up like 4 times, and was messing with Courtney's bed. She was comfortable, and in relatively little pain, so I told him to get away from the bed and leave it alone. He came in an hour later and tried to make her eat her breakfast, even though she was still asleep. I told him she would eat it when she was ready.

He was a real pain in the ass.
