Long rough day....

I just got off the phone with Diane at 9pm. As expected Cody had a very rough day. They didn't get him started until 4pm. After the long day that the nurses had, I guess they wanted to get Cody and Diane out as quick as they could. She kinda wanted to stay a little while longer so he could come down of the meds. He can be a real bear when he is on them.

The day started off kinda bad. I guess the Ronald McDonald House is full and they did not have any strollers left. Well I guess the hospital let her use a wheelchair. Pushing a wheelchair down the streets must be very different than pushing a stroller. Anyway, they started at 4 and I guess Cody had a pretty hard time. They had to give him 4 or 5 rescues of Dilaudid. Then they give him Vistoral which Cody is starting to have a very hard time with. They give it in place of Benadryl which Cody can not take. He goes totally crazy. So now she is trying to get him settled down for bed soon. I hope they have a better day tomorrow...
