Doing well

Mom is still doing well. She is very tired but we are staying right next to the bed to make sure she doesn't overdo things. We do make sure she gets a bit of exercise though - by getting up to give us giving us treats :) Now the Mom has been wearing a binder for the last few years to support her thin skin - she now has this big heavy one until the wound all heals and then will go back to the thin one for at least another 6 months. One thing Mom isn't happy with is that she always makes sure to tell them she has a latex allergy...and they used those little round monitor pads that must have had latex in them cause now she has big round patches that are covered in itchy red blisters. Gosh she had been some words we haven't heard before when she is trying not to scratch at them

    Glad she is able to give you treats. Lee and Phod

  8. Most hospitals are latex free. Maybe it's the conducting gel or just the pad themselves or the adhesive. They take latex allergies very seriously because it can progress to an anaphylactic reaction the more you are exposed . They know people with multiple surgeries are more at risk. Next time, hopefully there won't be a next time, tell them what happened. They have several different type of monitoring pads. Get well soon.
