Sunday night

Today has been a very relaxing day. No new orders. Matthew has slept most of the day. I have noticed tonight that Matthew is having a harder time keeping his oxygen saturations up. They had to switch him from a nasal canula for oxygen, to a mask. I intend to talk to the doctor tonight at rounds. This morning they did not want to take away any of his medications( they currently have him on 5), but I have decided now that he is too sedated. I will ask to get rid of 1 of his seizure medications.

Nothing else new to report. Hoping to work on gettin' out of here tomorrow.

It's so hard to find that balance between too little meds and too much.

We've been weaning Elisabeth off the Depakote since she started the Sabril....but now she has started having these jolt like seizures....so perhaps we need to keep the Depakote afterall.

But back to you and Matthew, I hope that you will find just the right balance for him. And I hope, hope, hope that you will be in the comfort of your own home soon.
