6 May 2012 Day One Down

          We’ve successfully administered the first day’s doses of antibiotic to Gloria.  We’re working with injection rig that should be changed every day and an IV cannula that needs to last 10 days.  That is a far reach for hospitalized patients.  The agency RN who started the line was under the impression that Gloria would have a PICC line in place.  She will ask for that to be put in.  That should make managing this series a bit easier and hopefully lessen the risks for Gloria. 
          Needless to say, we’re treating that line very gently. 
          We have nine more days of IV meds to complete.
