Evening update

Docs have made evening rounds. Some changes will happen tonight. Starting him on some new pain meds and increasing some as well. Giving him some benadryl to try and help comfort. Fever is back up (103.3), and he's retracting and wheezing some again. sugars have been stable. Still only using IV. Will trial J tube tomorrow. Also attempting to lower his O2 a bit to try and figure out how much he's requiring and how much is just being given as extra. The biggest priorities for the night is to help handle the pain. His mental status is off and he's very aggitated and uncomfortable. He is still refusing to open his eyes or have any interaction with us. Hoping to see some changes tomorrow. Oh and the ECHO came back showing that his damn blood clot is still there, small but there. Damn clot.
