I can't come up with a title for today's post. I'm losing my sense of creativity along with a whole lot of sleep. Jack just couldn't seem to get comfortable today. His heart rate was higher than usual and he was running a slight fever. Of course, the minute he runs a fever they want to culture everything. His central line is no longer "giving" blood, it's only taking in fluids (TPN). I told them there was no way anyone was even attempting to get blood out of Jack at this point. His veins are shot and the well is dry (so to speak). They gave him some Tylenol and turned down the temperature of his room. So far, he is keeping his temp down. He's finally resting comfortably for the first time today and respiratory is here to do their thing. Such is life in the hospital. I hate this ...

Ciao.

Ann sorry you are going through this. I hope Jack keeps getting better and better so you can go home. I know its early but when do they think he could go home. Typically what is the stay after this kind of surgery

Hang in there.

Hi there-
I wish there were something I could do for you. I'm sure you are feeling as though you are going to lose your mind! I'll be out of town tomorrow a.m. until Monday night but please know that I'll be thinking of you and praying for Jack non-stop.

Love,
Anne

Still praying for peace beyond understanding. Jack is a trooper and he will prevail.
