Exactly one week ago right now, Lincoln was prepping for surgery. What a difference a week makes. I am so thankful that the doctors, surgeons, pharmacists, and nurses are receptive to my ideas and knowledge about Lincoln. Dr. Haw made a joke about how meticulous I am, and said we won't have to worry about dental work with this "Mum." Dr. Winters jokes about my notebook, and my list of questions each day. It is nice to see that they are receptive to our input and making jokes. Murph and I have truly appreciated the amazing care team we have here at Devos.
They are lowering his morphine today (my suggestion that Dr. Haw seconded along with the pharmacist) and they are trying a mild anti-nausea medication that has no side effects. So, I am hoping my mommy gut is right, and that will solve his feeding issues. The cardiology team also looked into my suggestion of a twice-a-day heart medication instead of four times a day, and he will be starting that today instead of his Captapril. Once his Coumadin levels hit two, he can come off of the Heprin drip, and we can start regulating his Coumadin INR levels. We can get one step closer to coming home. He is currently at a 1.6. Hoping for a good day today, and we are so thankful for this sweet little boy of ours.
