Emmy finally fell asleep at 4:30 this afternoon and is sleeping comfortably. Hospice was here for a visit today. They flushed her port and did a straight catheter to get a urine sample. The lab results indicated Emmy has a UTI. Bless her little heart. It is no wonder she has been so uncomfortable and unable to sleep. She is now on antibiotics so hopefully that will make her more comfortable.
She has been itching and scratching non stop the past couple of days so we have also given her Benadryl. Between the Benadryl, the rest of her medications, lack of sleep and her recent discomfort, I am guessing that Emmy will sleep until tomorrow morning. Tonight should be a good night for all of us to get some rest. Hopefully she will wake feeling a little better. Thank you again to everyone for continued prayers.
