Monday was a rough one. Daughter had her treatment, then had horrible nausea and a migraine to show for it afterwards. They gave her shots of pain killer and anti-nausea medication, but by the time we saw her in the evening she was still suffering and was swearing up and down that if the next treatment was as bad, she was done.
Luckily, Tuesday was a day off from treatment and she was feeling better that evening. She didn't appear to have any memory loss until we were talking about the day my younger daughter and I had gone to her house to play World of Warcraft and were there most of the afternoon and evening. She got a blank look and couldn't come up with the day at all. That was a couple of weeks ago.
Yesterday she had another treatment. When we went to see her last night she was in good spirits and told us she had no pain this time, no nausea. They'd given her some medications during and prior to the procedure that evidently helped that problem. Thank goodness! She did say she came out of the procedure with absolutely no memory of where she was, what she was doing there, or when they explained she was there for ECT she had no clue what ECT was. She said it took awhile, but eventually it came back to her. However, last night she did have to re-learn the card game.
Except for a couple of other patients who startle her with their unpredictable outbursts… she's getting along okay. She's supposed to be staying until next Wednesday night, but now she's talking about seeing if she can get out tomorrow, Friday. I have mixed feelings about this. Particularily since she's not had more than a couple of treatments and although she seems to be doing quite well and looks good, even on very little medication, I'm just not sure I trust her yet to be home… at least until she's had a few more treatments. Call me selfish, but I'll worry a lot less if she's under the watchful eye of the medical personnell for a bit longer.
On the up side, I've been spending more time with my grandson. He and I have been going to dinner and I'm finding out a lot of things going on in the mind of a ten-year-old boy. It's been awhile since I've had those insights.
Once more, I appreciate all you comments, prayers, and well wishes. Thank you for every one of them.
