Had uneventful night. This AM had BM (light brown) sent to lab to check for occult blood; gastric suctioned secretions this morning were consistent with formula which had been stopped since ~1115a yesterday, so an abdominal KUB (kidney, ureter & bladder) X-ray was done to identify proper placement of feeding tube as well. Propofol (sedative) has been off since early this morning. He had been eye tracking to RN & was much more alert. An order to increase Klonopin to lessen the extent of the myoclonus was obtained, & he has been able to have body calmness & remain off the Propofol thus far - yay!!! I went to Holy Rosary Church in Little Italy & said the Novena to St. Anthony. It's within walking distance to the Transplant House of Cleveland. The Feast of the Assumption of Mary is underway, so I took advantage of feeling some sunshine & took in some really great smells with all of the food stands, got Italian ice for the staff at Corbo's Italian Bakery & of course had to get a sesame cookie like Grandma Martha used to make, & also brought some escarole & a chicken cutlet with gravy on fresh Italian bread from Angelo's Nido Italia - anticipation!!! Angelo's is where Perry & I went during one of our October anniversary trips to Cleveland. Angelo is who also asked his brother Nick for a picture of Perry, so it could be placed on the Blessed Mary's statue yesterday for the Feast of the Assumption of Mary. As walking into unit, Matt (RT) said Perry had been really alert & was tracking him really well & he was so thrilled to see that. Upon my arrival, ~1p, he was sleeping. His nurse gave me some additional updates since our phone conversation this morning. His hemoglobin has been staying in the 8's today, his platelets @ 135,000 (had been as low as 20,000 in recent days) & the majority of all other labs within normal limits. The feeding tube needed to be placed further down beyond his stomach according to X-ray. The sand bed had to be ordered special from Hill Rom, the bed manufacturer so it is anticipated to arrive Monday. He's been getting turned every 2 hrs today & still off the Propofol & the norepinephrine has been off too - systolic BP in the 100-110s, HR in the 80s. He's awakened a few times & he's definitely tracking & also seeming to track activity at the Nurse's Station too. Matt stopped by & he opened his eyes & looked directly at Matt as he talked to him & also nodded his head "yes" several times when he asked if he remembered him -ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC as short term memory indication!!!!! At times, he's been drawing his R hand to his L chest, grimacing with swallows & waking up on occasion & looking right @/& for me. He's been able to nod "yes" since I've been here twice to indicate he's having pain so he's received Fentanyl bolus as needed. Formula feeding were resumed at 2p @ 60 ml/hr (=2 oz/hr) which had been off since ~1115a yesterday to rest his stomach & decrease irritation etc related to the bleeding yesterday. Since feeding was started he's been having yellow green bile - a welcomed sight. He has been sleeping calmly.
