They never actually said it was. I'd just never heard of any other reason for insulin.
It's a short term thing. They say after this extensive surgery, the insulin promotes healing and prevents infection. Okay, I can understand that.
I spent most of the day at the hospital learning a bunch of stuff. We finally got home at close to 3 in the afternoon and then it took at least another hour at the pharmacy and still could only fill the insulin and syringe prescriptions. First they didn't get the fax from the hospital (took 3 tries before it came through) and then their billing computer was down. When I told them the other medication could wait; the insulin couldn't, they managed to work around the computer. I'll go back tomorrow after the rest.
I don't do the shots; I just fill the syringe. He does everything else although I did learn in case I need it.
So now I just gave him some dinner and I'll try to hold out until his last test at 10:00. Then I'll try to convince him it's bedtime because it's certainly mine.
Rochelle and Rebecca called a few minutes ago and were surprised and happy he was home. Rebecca was sorting crayons by color into separate boxes (very Rebecca). I'm not sure what Rochelle was doing.
Anyhow, I'm exhausted but wanted to get this short note up to let you know that he's home and all is well so far.
Thanks to all for the comments and the blogiversary wishes. Still can't believe I almost forgot it.
Take care everyone.
