Things continue to go well! We started the new motility med yesterday with quite a production. I actually had a really good laugh over it all. The medication we started was in the same family as a medication Alex has had an allergic reaction to before. So when we were ready to start the first dose yesterday, they brought a "crash cart" and placed it outside our door. Then 2 residents, 2 upper levels, an attending, my nurse, the charge nurse, a respiratory therapist and the pharmacist, Dr. Koenig, and Dr. Pacheco all stopped by. All for Alex to do fine with the medication! We continue to watch because Alex tends to react after several doses of a medication.
Around 10:30 this morning we started our sugar water into his gtube. We are praying we do okay. Dr. Koenig and I are both most concerned about his pancreas. We will see how he does over the next few days.
I will update if anything else comes of the day.
