Coleman's Journey 11/21

The neuro NP on duty had one of Coleman's sedative(s) (propofol) stopped so that Coleman could perform the standard neuro checks. It went well. He should have had the lung scope sample of the gunk in his right lung taken today so that they can getter a better feel for what's causing his fever. They started a low-dose blood thinner for clot prevention, which is of interest since they told us that Coleman can not be on blood thinners due to the work and damage in his head. His temperature has been ok, which has also been interesting, since they had him on sedatives due to his shivering, which came about due to the need to cool him down due to his fever.  

Did you get all of that?  

Today marks 3 weeks now that he's been in the neuro ICU at ANW.  Many thanks to family and friends that have been taking care of Deb, Sophia, and me.  We really appreciate your kindness and support.
