update. we saw dr. barry. and health stuff too

so we just saw dr. barry. emily spoke to her. i was going to but then i felt too shy to put myself out there. so emily said she would talk to her.
so she clarified that we’re staying in hospital until Saturday. we will go home on saturday morning. she said she’d have our discharge papers done up tomorrow, and that the weekend team would be put in place for us on sunday and then we’ll be seeing her again next wednesday.
emily and dr. barry talked about our feelings of overwhelm, the anxiety we’ve been having, and dr. barry said she thinks Carol anne wont come back unless things in the system settle down. i think she is right about that.
she said she didnt want the admission to interfere with our therapy session on Monday, that is why she is letting us go home on saturday.
emily just texted eileen now just to let her know we’d make our session on monday, and to ask her if we can call her today at some point.
in other news, our blood sugar levels were really high this morning, they were 12.6, not sure what that converts to in american numbers, but thats pretty high, because a normal reading is between 6 and 8.
and we’ve felt nausious and weak all day. we’ve also had a headache, a really bad one.
and of course the anxiety is really bad, too.
anyway. life goes on. we’ll be ok. please guys, pray carol anne comes back soon. i’m finding it really difficult to be out for long periods, i know i can act like carol anne but i’m not her. and i think people can notice the difference.
our nurse for the day, her name is lauren, she’s really nice. she came into our apt with dr. barry with us. on our way back to the ward she was all like, oh i didnt know you like to be called by the names of the different personalities. it was very cute. emily and some of the kids really like her. they told her so too on our way to dr. barrys office. they were like, lauren, i really like you!

  2. Hi Sienna. Nice to meet you. You are doing a good job, I know that it must be difficult. I’m proud of you too. I’m thinking of you all. I’m glad that you will be seeing Eileen on Monday. I know that she will do all that she can to help, and to get Carol Anne back. It’s going to be OK, hold onto that thought if you can.
    Take care guys. Big (((((hugs))))). xx

  3. Hi Sienna. I know we’re all wishing for Carol anne to come back, but meantime, teamwork is important to get the job done and you seem to be doing well at that. I think the more of you that get use to comeing out, the better it is as you can give each other a break from time to time and compare notes so you’re acting as much like Carol anne as possible.
