Friday has been the hardest day so far. Thursday night, John managed to get a total of 5 1/2 hours of sleep. That is the most he has slept thus far. His sugars went down to 89 so I gave him another glass of carrot juice. That was enough.
He did dialysis. Because of that he didn't get to drink water during that time. Then at 12:00, we had to go to the doctors for John to have his basal cell skin cancer removed from off of his cheek. He did not want to go but I told him that he scheduled it, so we need to get it done.
He was still antsy and breathing hard so it was very difficult him to sit still long enough to have it done. Thankfully, the doctor got it all the first time around.
We made it home so he could finally get some water in him. He was really wanting something to eat. I am sure it was very hard for him. He took an hour nap. It didn't help. He got quite a bit of water down though. He then took another nap in the evening. But that was it. He was then up until two in the morning pacing back and forth at least 100 times (maybe more). He was sweating and could have swore that his sugars were low. They weren't (146). But he convinced himself that they were so he got into my son's Chocolate Marshmallow Mateys. That was the only thing he could reach and get into. He also got into the sea salt. He tried to deny it, but he was the only one around. The other couple things he snuck during the week were the Oreo Cookies Nacho Doritos. Really not too bad considering his mentality and willpower right now.
I realized yesterday that 136 kg is 300 lb. That is how much John weighed in last Monday at Dialysis. Friday, he weighed 132.7 kg which is around 289 lb.
I gave up on the fomentations until he calms down. It just isn't worth the hassel to try to keep it on his back. Hopefully we can start it tonight.
Now it is Saturday. I let him sleep. He slept till almost 11 am. I gave him his pills, water and gruel. He went back to bed at 12 and slept till almost 2. I hope it helps.
