24/7 Method Pros:
Change out the meds once a day with one flush and new pump batteries
Have bag will travel
24/7 Method Cons:
always attached to the backpack
backpack with stuff weighs 5 lbs---a fifth of Shane's weight
Stress to both hernia and heart with the extra load
Surgery on hernia Thurs--no carrying of pack..hmmm
Obviously the other straps us to a schedule(4 times a day for 30 min) and more labor intensive med administration BUT it frees Shane to continue improving his walking/running free from a line and the added weight. He will still put the small med pack in his backpack and run around but that is a fraction of the weight!
And yes...our boy is scheduled for hernia repair this Thursday...his birthday : (.
Celebrating on Wednesday night!!!!!!!
Making the best of my time in here!
Chillin" and bored!
Sporting my new PICC Apparatus...
