It’s been a pretty boring day – which is GOOD when you are in the ICU! She just lays here sedated and paralyzed, breathing with the ventilator. She continues to be too unstable to even consider scheduling any surgeries. The doctors say she needs time. They are going to add diurel to her list of diuretics.
Yesterday they tried a Vec Holiday – a break from the vecuronium (the drug that paralyzes her). Before they started, I asked for bets about how fast they were going to add it back. (Mom! What little faith! said her doctor) Oh well, before I was even back from grabbing some lunch, they were filling a syringe with vecuronium. She really isn’t a fan of the vent! She tries to breathe over it and breathe when SHE wants to. Have I mentioned she’s a stubborn little thing and wants to do things her own way? :)
