Drs have stopped some of the meds and are trying to “flush” them out.
They are hoping that this will give some positive results…
Right now BIL is very incoherent (mumbles and doesn’t fully realize who is around him) and has what my hubby described as “jerky” movements. Drs are hoping that flushing the meds out of his system will make him more like the “normal” BIL as far communication with people and his movements.
They are also trying to get him to eat and after much fight with my sister she did manage to get him to eat 2 bites of chicken and a glass of milk. He kept telling her to leave him alone and that she had to get the baby. (However the baby was sitting in his lap…and she had to keep telling him honey you have the baby in your lap)
All he wants to do is sleep, but the Drs want him wake because they want him to eat. They say eating will help flush his system of some of the medication.
When my hubby left the hospital about 20 minutes ago BIL temp was 98.9 (which is much better considering all that he has been through). Still a little high but better.
Please keep in your prayers
He is still on oxygen; He still has e. coli and pneumonia; and the kidney stone/infection.
I learned today that YESTERDAY his blood pressure shot all the way up to 200 something over 100 something. (I forget the real number now). Its high now but NOT that high… I wish I had the exact number to share with you all, but I don’t.
Thank you for all the prayers,
Especially you mommyof4…
