Well that sucks!

My mother would chastise me that that comment was not very ladylike. But, some days you have to tell it like it is.
This morning after rounds when the team gets together for a chin wag they decided Carl would have to go back on the ventilator. I wasn't at the hospital yet when all this was going down. The social worker filled me in.

"mother approved"

Carl slept a total of 45 minutes all night. He was extremely agitated all day and night and his O2 levels were in the basement and his heart rate was sky high. At the last moment the Dr. decided to try the non re breather mask at 100% in the hopes it would do the trick. They had tried the BiPap machine and he tolerated that for 5 minutes. Well, his heart rate came down and the O2 levels went up. Everyone was walking around all day with their digits crossed.
He was still agitated today and when he is determined look out!
When I left at 5pm he was resting. We will see what tomorrow brings.

  1. Tough day! That really does suck! Hopefully tonight and tomorrow will be better. You both need some sleep. Glad to see you still have your sence of humour!
    Hugs and prayers,
