Breathe In is back after a brief end of summer hiatus! Lea finds herself on IV’s to start up September, so the trio talks about some of their experiences with home IV’s. Home IV’s can seem complex and overwhelming especially for patients and families who haven’t yet developed a routine for recurring pulmonary exacerbations. Gunnar and the girls talk about the importance of finding a home care nurse that’s easy to work with, remaining vigilant for medical mistakes – from expired medications to allergies – and, above all else, following a path to better health. The trio also talks about some of the tips and tricks they’ve learned along the way, like mixing self-pumping Eclipse Balls themselves and bringing their own supplies from home to the hospital for the PICC line placement team.
