Yesterday morning, August 14th, I was informed that Perry had had an uneventful night & that his heart & lungs remained status quo. He was on Propofol @ 15 & was calmly sleeping upon our initial arrival. The Wound Care RN came to see if he had gotten the sand mattress which was/is still pending. I feel significantly less anxious as one of the residents demonstrated to me the moisture I had been feeling to his left chest was related to a chest tube leak. He clamped off the chest tube briefly to demonstrate that the moisture feeling would dissipate - which it did. An MRI is still in the works but he has not been stable enough to go for it. The remainder of the day Ryan & I would notice eye tracking to us & at times what appeared to be emotional facial expressions. Ry had to leave to get to the airport around 730p however his flight was delayed due to none other than "heat lightning" in Chicago. Shortly after 11p last night, Perry was moved to a larger room (Bed 3) across from the Nurse's Station as it had become available. His systolic BP dropped to 70-90s & his body twitching (myoclonus) continued for quite some time. I departed from his bedside about 2a to take a rest in the waiting room. This morning, August 15th, I noticed that Perry was having coffee ground colored gastric secretions from his NG (nasogastric) tube & at ~1035a thin watery red blood was noted - a new development. The NG tube was removed from suction & clamped. His formula feeding was stopped. An anesthesiologist & surgeon stopped by & changed his GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) medication was changed to Protonix. Blood was drawn & his hemoglobin was 8.7 which was ok compared to previous counts. I had been noticing increased swallows followed by facial grimaces perhaps indicating pain. Surgeon came by -saying "I'm not surprised he's having coffee ground secretions as he may have some stomach inflammation in his stomach & irritation from the feeding tube & NG tube. He is not able to have a scope to determine the source of the bleeding. Will continue to monitor him & give blood if necessary. His Propofol got reduced during the day to 18 having started at 20 in AM & was back up to 20 when I left at 930p. I'm exhausted so heading to bed. Wishing Perry & all of you a good night's sleep. I am sooo far behind in correspondence & thank yous to everyone so please forgive me.
