Last night was tough. Yesterday she had her tube retied, it was not pretty. It is a dangerous procedure and she needs to be sedated for it. The sedation wasn't working very well and 3 people were working on her. I had to leave the room as she kept crying around the tube and there wasn't anything I could do to help her calm down. (I would have been in the way) She survived the tube tying and so did I. We both cried. While it is good to hear her voice, she sounds like a sick kitten looking for its mommy. Kamryn was given a another medication yesterday. It appears that the medication may have been the cause of her rapidly beating heart and her fever. This medication is good for her heart but hasn't been paired with another of her medications for her before. They skipped two of the doses of Captopril this morning and she was able to sleep, with the aide of morphine and ativan. She is now sleeping. Rounds are now more later.
