We had an eventful night. Since Jaden is SO strong, the morphine was not helping him. So they had decided to put him on a constant morphine drip. This ended up being too much and his sats kept dropping. So they had to use a drug called narcan which reverses the morphine some. He was very angry and agitated so they also gave him a drug called chlorohydrate which takes the edge off. This has helped a little but he did not get much sound sleep. Right now he is sleeping really well and has been for a good hour or two.
He is pretty swollen today which is pretty common. He has not been out putting enough urine so they started his lasix back up to help him. His hemoglobin and potassium are both low so they are giving him a blood transfusion and some potassium which helps the heart contractions better.
Now for the lines. During surgery they had to put the line in his neck because that was the only option we had left. They pulled that out right when they were done with surgery. They also got one periphial line in his hand for a "just in case," and a line in his groin. The main lines which he is supposed to be able to keep his whole stay are attached directly to his heart. They are called right atrium lines (RA). So the RA line has fallen out of the area they need it to be. They should be able to just move it around a little to get it back where it needs to be. It could have fallen a little also because he has so much extra fluid in him at this point. We will have to watch that and work on fixing that. Right now the nurses are switching the antibiotics to the other RA line to hope that this one is still in the right spot.
So nothing to major at this point but not completely stable or where we want him to be.
