Still Awake and Today's Plan

He never did drift back off. He's going to be one sleepy or crabby boy today!

Docs just finished rounding here and they are confident that his intervals looked good overnight and that the 100 was just being paced and not flutter. I really want them to interrogate it again, which is very simple to do. They said they can look at it again before he's moved to the floor. The milrinone is getting turned off for the second time soon so as soon as that's done, we wait six hours to see how he is and then if he's fine and there's space out there, we move to the floor. His INR level this morning is 2.64 which is right where we want it, somewhere in the 2-3 range. His coumadin and dig were both cut in half last night for his evening dose and are going to stay that way for now. Apparently there is some issue with drug interactions at the doses he was at previously.

Sounds like he's moving in the right direction now. But I won't let up on the prayers.
Just so you know and can help if you're not tied up, I say my prayers for him at the top of every hour. Maybe if we say them at the same time each day, his healing will be stonger and faster??
We love you all.
