Day 5

May 4, 2010

Today wasn’t such a great day. But we knew it wouldn’t be, so it’s not a surprise. They unplugged the epidural this morning and started Andy on a course of oramorph and something else that I can’t remember the name of to kill the pain! Not so much! It was really bad this morning but the drugs started to kick in during the afternoon. So with the pain from the staples and the fact he can’t use his left arm it made moving around very hard for Andy today. At least the central line they’re using to feed him is coming out this evening – they actually stitched that into his neck so I guess it won’t be fun to remove – and that will improve his mobility a lot.

Hopefully tomorrow will be better – he’s got lots of visitors so that will be nice.
