Today in Barbara’s world

Barbara progressed from “clear liquids” to “full liquid” diet. One more small step in the right direction.

She’s been unexplicably, even for her, depressed for a couple of days, getting worse each day. Well, today I realized: :SNAP: her anti-depressant was an oral med. She’s had no oral meds since she went NPO for surgery. Of course she is depressed. Abrupt DC of anti-depressants is generally a bad idea.

Once I realized this, I brought it up to the critical care team that is seeing her. They are going to discuss it with her attending. Hopefully, she will get back on her anti-depressant by sometime tomorrow.
