It's 1:10am and Connie's still awake! He just had a bowel movement though, so now maybe he can settle down a bit. First he was extremely silly and wound up. Now he's quiet, but wiggly. His numbers look great on the monitors though so I'm not too worried. Maybe it's just the super-long, drug induced nap he had today. The most difficult thing is to keep him from constantly entangling himself in the wires and pulling off leads. The nurse just came in and said they are going to draw labs around 6am. He'll get a grand total of 4 1/2 hours of sleep, assuming he falls asleep anytime soon. Are you kidding me? The custodian just came in the room with a new, noisy trash bag! Do they seriously empty the trash at this time of night in occupied rooms? What are they thinking?
Rounds are prompt at 6:30 am and since he's in bed 12, he'll be the first one they discuss. Guess I better try to grab some shut eye once he dozes off.
