Day 42 - Daddy Learns New Skills
Daddy has spent the last few days learning and practicing various nursing skills, like drawing labs, administering medications, flushing lines and changing caps of the central line, setting up the pump to administer IV medication, changing a dressing, and more!
He will take the lead caring for Everett for approximately 4 to 6 months after discharge from the PBMT unit at Duke University Hospital. During this time, he and Everett will be living at the Ronald McDonald House. If all goes, well, discharge is coming soon!
