Jeremy was pleased to go home on another Gate Pass today, and wanted to cook and eat baked chicken wings. He made a delicious flour mix to coat the chicken wings using random shakes of whatever spices and herbs he found in the cupboard, but unfortunately only took a few bites of the cooked product.
We are still encouraging him to drink more, and also working out how much water we are able to put down his nasogatric tube at home - this afternoon we overdid it, causing him to vomit the water back out!
When he gets back to hospital at nights, the nurses take some blood from his central line and send it to the lab for testing. He also has blood taken in the early hours of the morning. Over the past few days, his electrolyte levels in his blood have not been normal and the doctors are adjusting and readjusting his overnight fluids (IV down his central line) to try to correct them.
