    using netflix or blockbuster in demand in the hospital

    I subscribed to Netflix for the purpose of watching it in hospital as well as at home. Our hospital doesn't support streaming videos, so it doesn't do us any good to have it.

    Regular CT Scans?

    My daughter doesnt have a CT scan at her clinic but she does have them when admitted. It was 4 a year but they have decided that is too much exposure so now it is only 2 a year.

    We are still in the hospital but hopefully going home soon. I did talk to the doctor about using inhaled Vanco. He said he would try it, along with another inhaled antibiotic on a two week on, two week off rotation. He said the inhaled Vanco isnt for everyone, so we will see.

    IV at home.... in middle of night
