Wendy had a productive walk today. She matched her farthest length walked. She will have blood work and an x-ray done at midnight. If she is relaxed and sleeping well tonight they won't make her get up to sit in a chair.
The PCA infusion system worked well for Wendy today. She accessed a drip of Fentanyl about every 15 minutes. She said her pain was at a 5 to a 5 1/2 throughout the day.
They are continuing to watch the abscess outside of her stomach. She is only receiving two antibiotics to fight the abscess and they will not add a third antibiotic at this point.
Wendy had a terrible reaction to a drug called Colace that was put into her stomach through her NG tube today. She was extremely nauseas for over an hour. Wendy cannot throw up at this point. Cannot. They needed to give her Colace again later this evening so they partnered it with Zofran an anti-nausea medication and her anti-anxiety medicine, Ativan. The anti-nausea medicine and anti-anxiety medicine helped.
- Wendy doesn't feel anxious.
- The abscess goes away.
- She sleeps well.
