About an hour ago we switched from morphine to codeine and tylenol so hopefully he will hallucinate less. |He's calm right now, watching a little more Blues Clues and occasionally picking apples. Hopefully this drug switch will do the trick and the rest of his sedative drugs will wear off.
He's not too impressed with all of the stuff stuck to his body. He pulled out an arterial line out of his arm earlier, but it turns out that was a good thing, as it was starting to go and his arm is a bit puffed out. Pulling it out prevented it from getting puffier and more uncomfortable.
The positive side of his restlessness is that he's taking care of his physio for his lungs! Oh ya I found out a little bit more about his lungs: because of scarring from when he was a baby the sack around the lungs is adhering to the lungs. That sack is not usually attached to the lungs and that is the bit of tissue that probably was interfered with during surgery.
Now it's 11 pm and J.J. has just fallen asleep, he looks really good and calm so here's hoping for a peaceful night!
