Bob needs some stuff and more books. I am headed out to Wichita this morning. I will leave as soon as I have eaten breakfast. Hopefully I will be there for rounds. Rumor has it he will be sent home Monday, but when he is I am sure he is going to need to get set up with the local hospital for outpatient IV antibiotics. It feels overwhelming, but will be better when he is close. The big cats have been in and eaten. They spend most of the day in shady areas around the yard. Bitty snuck out when Tinker came in, but she came back when I did not chase her. I am pretty hungry now and need to go eat and run. See you later in the day.

@JudyEv She's simply 'dorable. I was heartbroken when I thought she had vanished for good.

Can your bob get to the bathroom on his own?

Yes, he just has to make sure the IV pole goes with him.

@sharon6345 When he got the PICC line it made things even better. It only takes a half hour for his medicine to go in. Getting the antibiotics, both in hospital and now as an outpatient have relieved the pain that he has been in for months. He will be a lot healthier when this is all done.

You sound very busy it will all fall into place. Cats are very smart and a handful.

It does all work out. Bob misses the cats when he is away.

@GardenGerty always the animals. They probably were happy to see him too.

He is bored, and when he tries to sleep he is disturbed. It will get better.

@GardenGerty That is the major problem in the hospital, when you want to rest they wake you up.

@LadyDuck Yes, it made him grumpy. He likes having his own bed, his cats, his own food and is happy to be able to see me, and take a nap if he needs it.

I am hoping this is part of what was stressing his kidneys. They have been better while he has been in the hospital.

@RebeccasFarm Since all the toxins from everywhere have to filter through the kidneys I just feel like this has been part of the problem.

He is so ready, but he will be on IV medication for a long time.

@GardenGerty So much to deal with. We can get used to many things when we need to, it seems.

@paigea The PICC line makes the antibiotics go in faster. With the regular IV in his hand it took 4 hours. With the PICC line into a large vein it only takes a half hour. He drives to the clinic once a day.

We finally got him home Monday night. Part of the reason it was so hard on him is that although he has this infection that is hard to treat, he felt really too healthy to be in a hospital. They needed him there for all the tests, though.
