“To Twitter” is on course to enter the collective vocabulary – the act of describing what you are doing at any given time. Jude, a child of the 21st Century, is now twittering here
For those of you who ‘Twitter’ – hopefully I will remember to update it every now and then.
As to the man himself – 3 big respiratory problems last night – all resolved. The last one was 6am (another couple around 2am) and he’s been sleeping ever since. He looks so peaceful asleep, it’s difficult to imagine that there has been so much drama.
He had an xray of his abdomen this morning which showed that his feeding tube was all in the right place, there was a little constipation (nothing new there Jude). They are going to do a chest x-ray to check there is no chest infection.
There’s a little baby in HDU, 7 month old Louis. I was listening in yesterday to his mom talking and it sounded like Louis and Jude were doing very similar things – prolonged breath holding episodes. I had a chat with Mom this morning and she was saying that Louis and Jude were behaving themselves in that they didn’t both go together. 7 month old Louis has been in hospital for 5 months now and won’t be going home until the reasons for these episodes have been discovered. That sent a shiver through me…..
We have a room at the hospital which offers us a little more comfort should this be a prolonged stay but I still hope this is a reaction to recent events rather than the start of something new. It appears that these episodes are pain related – and they have increased his pain medication, maybe without pain he will be better.
The neurologist gave us a brief update on Jude’s EEG – not good but not something he wants to deal with at the moment. Just wondering whether I should google what he told me or just let it rest for a while…………….
……….I’ll probably google.
*edit: I googled..perhaps I shouldn’t have done that. 😦
