Last night was quiet but busy. His arterial line in his groin, which has the line that they messure his pressures in, this is total pressure not pressure in his heart...this is a blood pressure line that the needle up into the vein.....went bad. So they had to find another aterial line to put in. They finally got it, after several tries and two different Attendings. It was after midnight and things leveled out so I went to sleep. Didnt hear when they came in to do yet another i.v because the one in his thumb went bad, so another went into the foot. They are going to run out of spots soon and we arent even awake yet.
I believe they will pull the lines out of his heart today and close the drain tubes. Other than that I dont think they have anything planned but they havent done rounds yet....so I will post later as well.
Tucker got a bath, his tape changed on his precious face, he got a bath and his bedding changed....it was a busy night for the nurse.
