Overnight Complications

During the wee hours of the morning, Tucker had a few complications. I'll give you a simple run down and then update Twitter as needed.

130am (EST) a new medication was added to Tucker's regimen to begin the Detox of his body.

This new med was suppose to work instantly, instead Tucker laughed it off.

They tried (at least half a dozen times) to get an arterial line in to help monitor his blood pressure very closely, but they haven't been able to find a line. The new meds can cause really low BP so they must watch it carefully and have another med handy to bring his BP back up if it should fall.

Okay, so that brings us to about 330am (EST) this morning.

Tucker began having a negative reaction the detox meds. Started hallucinating and such. Heart rate changed dramatically and he didn't know who Mommy was. This was suppose to be a nice and gentle drug to bring Tucker down.

They stopped the meds. They are going to have to try to find something else. He was awake at this time and doing better with the meds off. Still 12 pokes in and no arterial line either.

They gave him some Cloralhidrate to help get an i.v so they can do the new drugs we are putting on board.

LONG night/morning for all. I haven't heard from her this morning. (945am CST) I hope they got things better and soon.

Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers today. Updates will be going out via Twitter for a good portion of the day. Follow Me On Twitter.
