What a day -- a very long boring day, which is a good thing. This big issue of the day is Gavin's edema. He woke up this morning with both his eyes swollen shut with fluid. He is looking a little better this evening after some albumin and lasix but his eyes are still very squinty.
We are going to attempt to give him a custom mix TPN solution and see how his electrolytes do. besides that fact that he is still not making enough urine his numbers are looking better. Unfortunately the temp femoral line is not "central" enough to run his usual D22 mixture so he will have to get by with D12.
He is still pretty miserable. We gave him some morphine last night which gave him some relief for a few hours. We have been sticking with Toradal today but we have some morphine on hand for this evening in case he needs it. I'm hoping he will do fine without the additional meds.
The last issue we are watching is his downward trending blood counts, I would not be surprised if he needed some more blood products before the upcoming surgery, which we still don't have a definite date or time.
You all are amazing and the love and support we are receiving through this site is almost overwhelming. Thank you all so much!
