Without fail, EVERYTIME I worry about "silly" stuff, something happens to put me back in place. Tonight Mike felt warm and I took his temperature. It was 101.8. We had gotten him into bed, so I changed him and as I did, I saw he had blood in his urine. I believe he may have a UTI. I called hospice and they ordered an antibiotic for him. I also asked for a nurse to come tomorrow, since no one has seen him this week. The on-call nurse seemed surprised about that. The unpredictability regarding his health is the EXACT reason why I believe he should not be discharged from hospice. One minute he's fine, the next he's not.
