Like the evening munchies? Well, check out what Vampboy has before departing to sleepy-land — all prepared and managed by Vampmommy and I.
1. Benadryl – pushed via IV. This helps prevent bad side effects that are caused by Reglan.
2. Reglan – pushed via IV. Helps prevent the throwing up of things.
3. Ativan – pushed via IV. Another drug to prevent overnight puking.
1. Kepra – oral (pushed through the tub in his nose). Prevent seizures, which Vampboy is at risk for due to having his brain poked at.
2. Atovaquone – oral (through that there tube!). An anti-biotic, with the look and consistency of bright yellow paint. Best to give mixed with Pedialyte to dilute.
3. TPN – this is the overnight feeding that is done via IV. Add vitamins, shake, connect to pump, prime, attach to Vamboy’s port, and off we go! Dispenses slowly over 12 hours, ensuring that the whrrrr-click of the pump lulls us through the night.
Repeat of 8pm meds. Boy, is it dark in the middle of the night.
1. Repeat of all 8pm and 2am meds. Boy, I’m freakin’ tired.
2. Protonix – pushed via an IV pump. Helps keep our little one’s tummy from producing too much acid.
3. Zofran – Pushed via IV. The main warrior in the battle against vomit.
Didn’t I just do this?
