Dehydration Day 2

Before you ask, I am doing better today.  A lot of TLC from my parents did wonders.  Carien and I stay with them when W & w sleep in hospital.

I have made peace with the idea of spending the week in hospital.  Not that I have much of a choice. 

Woutertjie is doing a lot better today.  He even ate a bit.  And he asked for a cuff aff tea (cup of tea – you have to love his attempts at phonetic English).  He only started urinating after receiving 1.2 litres of fluid.  In other words, his 14.3kg body needed 1.2 litres of water before it could start excreting water.  Today he is still not urinating enough so his fluid infusion rate was increased.

  1. Goeie more!
    Suzanne,ek haal my hoed af vir jou. Dink ek sou al lankal die berge in gehardloop het. En jy kry dit al vir 10 maande reg!!!?
    Sterkte!
    Moet nooit vergeet dat ons BAIE aan jou dink en ongelooflik baie vir JOU bid. Want die Ma moet net altyd sterk staan en reg wees…
    Mag Boeta se chemo goed verloop en mag hy meer in hou.
    Moet bieg, my engels is nie van die beste nie en het dus die woord “emaciated” gegoogle. Het aangeneem dit beteken maer, maar die beskrywing was effens skokkend: “To make or become extremely thin, especially as a result of starvation. …”
    Shame, my hart gaan werklik uit na jou as ma, as vrou en net as ‘n gewone individuele mens. En natuurlik bly klein Boeta in my gebede!
    Sterkte vir die week en al sy uitdagings en slaggate
