This morning’s update

Yes, I know it isn’t technically morning any more. But if you had been up until almost 3 am, you would be running a bit behind too.

The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. OK, slight exaggeration. Still… I woke up at about 6:15 am to a commotion here in lasarina‘s room. They were trying to draw arterial blood, I think. I was pretty drowsy. She had spiked a fever of 101.3, and they needed blood for cultures. Can you guess where this is going?

Yep, more sepsis. PICC line will be removed as soon as they can find a surgeon to place a central line to replace it. Surgery tomorrow? Not with sepsis active. Postponed, again. Her attending says that this time, he is not going to let them send her back to Kindred between now and whatever new surgical date we get. He’s going to get this cleared up quickly, and get her back on the surgical schedule. I hope he can do just that.

Damn it, we are getting really tired of this.
