Our Teddy Bear's Journey

Theodore was born with renal failure. This is his story.


on April 10, 2012

Every day starts with unhooking from the feeding pump and then administering morning meds. After that, I wash bottles and syringes and draw meds for the next 24 hours.

So this is the box I use to hold all the meds, except the ones that go in the fridge. There’s also the big can of Beneprotein there on the left.


I draw up a days’ worth and keep them in these little cups, one for mid-day, one for evening, and one for morning. The cup on the left is just some extra syringes. This box also holds the giant syringe for venting the Gtube, the steriod cream for granulation tissue around the tube, and the gent cream (antibiotic) for the PD catheter exit site.
