Dad looked pretty good last night, but Sara called this morning and said he wasn't doing too well. Yesterday, they had to replace an IV line and started a new antibiotic. When I got there at 4 the Respiratory lady came in and pulled down his sheet and his arm was swollen and the IV port had come apart and alot of the antibiotic had dripped out on the bed. They couldn't give him anymore until his next dose because they didn't know how much he got.
The nurse took out that IV and put another one in last night. Sara said he got the antibiotic again and his arm was swollen. She didn't know if it was from the one that happend at 4 or if was another reaction.
Sara also said that his butt looked real bad. The sore was much worse than from when we got there a week ago and now he has 3 more scratches on his rear. I asked Sara to ask the nurse to get him an egg crate to make the bed softer. She showed the nurse the wound and she said it looked ok to her, but Sara said it was looking bad.
Sara was also going to ask if he could get some tylenol as he was shouting since 4 am, and that usually means pain for him.
Will keep you updated.
