Still at Home!

Zachary has been recovering at home.  When he was discharged on Friday, he enjoyed his favorite supper at Perkins in Oshkosh on the way home.  He had a pretty good weekend, but he was tired.  Zachary still gets out of breath here & there throughout the day, but it is usually associated with walking.  He is on his antibiotic for a few more days, and his stomach doesn't like it too much.  Thus, Zach's appetite isn't back to normal yet.  Overall, he's feeling better, and the tutor came yesterday.  Today he had a check up with his local doctor in Green Bay, and his lungs sound better.  They sounded so much better that no x-ray was needed.

I want to remind you of how easy it is to sign up to clean our home.  All you need to do is click on the Planner on the menu above.  Next you'll see a calendar.  Pick a day you'd like to help us out and click on that day, and that's how you sign up.  There's no contact person, and we all immediately know that day is taken care of.  We are thrilled to have any amount of assistance.  You can come in teams or in doubles, whatever works best for you.  It takes about 15 hours per week total to do dialysis treatment at home. We wouldn't have it any other way, but it takes time.  That's where you can be such a tremendous help.

Thanks for your continued, unending, everlasting support.  We are lucky to have you as Zman Fans!
