Friday morning Rounds

Lincoln's first dose of Coumadin resulted in 1.2, so we are hoping with another big dose tonight, he should be therapeutic by his weekend! He & heparin do not get along, so unless they give him a boost of it, he doesn't get in the therapeutic range. 

He gets to have that chest tube removed today- it removed 87 cc of fluid, so he must have been in a lot of pain. They are switching his LASIK to oral, which I am guessing means that he will continue to take it at home. 

He is eating & drinking this morning, and while he is still grumpy, so much easier to deal with than yesterday. They think yesterday might have been a combination of the effusion pain & withdrawals from the Fentanyl & Oxycodone he's been on since surgery. Poor baby boy has been through a lot, so it could even be a reaction from surgery.

They want to try to get him out of his bed today, which would be great for his spirits.  I accidentally flicked milk all over him, and he almost giggled. He definitely cracked a smile at me :) ❤️🙏😍

We are moving in the right direction! Thank you for your prayers!!!
