Erin’s fellow GBMer, Bea, from the SF peninsula was due to arrive this morning about 10:30. We were afraid that this was going to conflict with the bath which usually is around 11. So, I was quite happy when Evelyn, the bath giver, called at 8:30 and said that today she was coming at 9. She was just finishing up about 10:15 when Donna, the RN who superivises all of the hospice workers, showed up to evaluate Evelyn. Evelyn left and Donna talked to Erin, I guess to make sure Evelyn was following protocol.
Before Donna left, Bea arrived. She is going strong. She was diagnosed 3 months after Erin, but has had no recurrence since the initial surgery. I guess she has to make more notes to herself to remember things, but I was not aware of any deficits. Erin and Bea went for lunch and to Target. About 2 pm Bea dropped Erin at Colleen’s where she napped in a chair downstairs for about 3 hours while Colleen worked upstairs. Colleen brought her home about 5, and then Erin napped another 3 hours.
Erin does have pain all over, especially in the back of her neck and her legs. Donna said to take meds to keep it under control.
