Time change and taking medications

@rosemarya @jodeej When my husband was transplanted, he had been working for his company for 35 years. When he went back to work he determined 8:30 and 8:30 works for him. At 8:30 a.m. is his first break at work, where he eats breakfast and takes his pills. At 8:30 at night the alarm goes off he takes his pills, then goes to bed. He has an alarm on his phone that goes off and increases in volume until he turns it off. A couple of times he has muted it because of a meeting and has taken meds a little late maybe a half hour. We each have small containers to take single doses of our meds in if we will be out somewhere [and it is a standing question "do you have your meds?"]. We look at it as honoring the donor by taking meds in a timely fashion to stay as healthy as possible. Hope this helps, and good luck on going back to work. Although bosses do not have the right to talk to ask, I hope your husband will share with his immediate supervisor about the surgery so that at least someone there is aware if there was ever to be a problem.

@gingerw my husband has been very open with everyone he works with about his surgery, from his supervisors to the guys he manages.
We will see how his schedule goes and decide the best times for his meds.
