Erin Update - 9 AM

I arrived the very same moment Ron and Erin did coming from the hopsital yesterday. It was funny, we pulled into the parking area of the hotel at the exact time.

Getting settled at first was a bit crazy. The pharmacy because of one of the idiot doctors orders gave her pills for all med's instead of liquid. Erin can;t swallow well and is on soft and liquid foods. Poor Deb was on the phone and at three pharmacies before the vicodin for Erin's pain was finally in her hands in liquid form. Erin had at first gone past her time frame for her pain med's and had a meltdown and was upset. Erin is fine now, on her med's right on time and doing pretty well considering. Getting her comfortable seems to be the biggest challenge for all of us at the moment.

She had a little cream of wheat this morning and is sleeping now. Mackenzie is doing well. When it warms up outside she and I will spend some time around the pool. She loves it out there.

Today Deb and I are going to organize everything in the hotel room so we can move about and find things easier. More later when momentsd arise..................

Thanks for the update Mom! Tell Erin, AD and Mackenzie we say HI! I hate when doctors do dumb stuff like that...you put her on a liquid diet and then give her pills? Nice. I'm glad it was finally taken care of and that she is resting now!!!! Have fun by the pool!

Hi, Y'All! I hope that you are somewhat close to being organized and that Erin is continuing to rest and hopefully well by now. I remember an incident when I was in hospital and the surgical floor ran out of morphine; I understand meltdown...give her an understanding hug from me. With Jen, it's difficult to understand how docs can be at once so good and then so dumb. Take care. Love you, Vaden
