Pretty soon, I won’t be around to observe Calder’s PT sessions – but someone else will. A nurse! I have been working at this for months, literally. We need a nurse as opposed to a nanny because of Calder’s specific medical needs, particularly his oxygen and G-tube. (Not to mention that day care is out of the question for us, according to our docs.) Of course, the need for a nurse was much greater (in both a medical and number-of-hands sense) when he first came home around Thanksgiving last year, but with me going back to work (starting with teleworking) on May 1, there is now no question that we need more help at home. Finally, FINALLY, I have been told the nurse will be on our doorstep next Tuesday morning. We will have two who split the week, so this should give me just enough time to show them the ropes before I hole myself upstairs with my computer throughout the day.
