Tubie Pad Feature : Turkey Tot Customs

With Carrie0762WebI’ve been working to put together a guide to Tubie Pads!  After years of feeling lost in the Tubie Pad world, I finally decided to jump in and bring you along with me!  I’ve gathered pads from several makers.  I’ll be sharing several things about each maker’s Tubie Pads over the next few weeks:

  • My personal thoughts on the maker’s Tubie Pads.
  • A bit of each maker’s story.
  • The materials they use and special features that sets each of them apart to help you find the right fit for you.
  • Lots of photos to hopefully help you get a full picture of what you are purchasing (on a human, front, back, etc.)
  • Price and where to find the Tubie Pads.
  • Lots of other nuggets of info depending on what each maker chooses to share!

This week’s feature is on Dana from Turkey Tot Customs!  She is based in sunny Florida!  I have talked so much with this sweet gal, and she is a pure joy!  When I reached out to her about this project, she was so excited, immediately asked what I loved, then made an absolutely perfect set for me!  I told her “florals, vintage patterns (gingham, stripes, etc.) and humorous novelty prints.”  I’d say she nailed it!  Look how cute!IMG_4583 Continue reading “Tubie Pad Feature : Turkey Tot Customs”

Choices : TPN Infusion Pharmacies

Hi there!

I hope you are doing great! Staying hydrated, out of the hospital, having fun and such!

It’s been a hot minute since I started a series called Choices, but I’d really like to jump back into that!  Plus, I’ve still got about a million photos I took at the grocery store because where else can you get perfect images that demonstrate the zillion choices we have in our lives?

In my first post, I talked on some tips and questions I ask myself when I’m looking at the doctors in my life.  Now I’d like to take a look at the tips and questions I like to ask myself when I’m choosing the company who mixes and delivers my TPN and supplies.

Choices : Doctors

Who’s ready for a new series of posts?

Great, me too!

Over the next few weeks I’m going to share about the many choices that come with being chronically ill and some more specific to those of us on TPN and/or tube feeds.

My friend Joey, the manager at our local grocery store, gave me permission to take photos in his store.  I’ve had so much fun taking photos for my blog, and when it came to the photos to illustrate “choices,” what better place than the grocery store?  There are SO many options.  So although they don’t relate directly, I think the message is clear, endless choices!
