Gavin is doing a little better this afternoon as far as pain control. It was decided in rounds this morning to put Gavi on a Morphine pump in addition to the morphine dose every 2 hours. He is still waking up moaning but much less than earlier this morning. No major plans other than to try to hydrate him, which has it's associated complications. Lets just pray again for lots of pee. He is still running a fever and no word yet on the cultures.
At this point I'm feeling a bit better. My two main concerns are his fever and his coloring, which is looking rather pale/yellow. I know he is in amazing hands here in the PICU so I'm just trying to sit back and relax, which for those who know me understand this is very difficult for me to do.
We did talk to the surgeon who said he would put back in Gavin's previous gtube for me. Right now he has a mic button, which everyone seems to love, but I love the peg tube and so does Gavin. In fact Gavin keeps trying to find his tube and it's not there, which has him frustrated. His PEG tube has become a source of comfort for him -- weird I know, but so true.
