Her blood pressure and heart rate were better if not "rock solid" today. Her temp fluctuated up to 103 again today. The doctors and nursing staff are systematically narrowing down what the source is of this.
No blood cultures have showed anything for several days, her white blood cells are normal, and other blood levels are normal. The nephrologist signed off on her today, so kidneys good. They did more breathing trials and she did great.
They want to get her off the fentanyl and put her on something else. She is very high doses of that, and still seems to be in a little pain, thus the switch to something else she "hasn't gotten used to." this could be a cause.
In keeping with trying to figure out if there is an infection causing the temperatures, they may replace her main iv (which is in her subclavian). no biggie, but this could be a cause.
Her OB took out her staples from the c-section to check it out. There was some pretty old looking blood in the wound, explaining the little bit of oozing there from yesterday. There also was a little bit of fat tissue necrosis. Which was removed, the surrouding areas around it looked clean. Tissue samples sent for cultures. This could be a cause.
I think tomorrow I am going to press for the vascular surgeon to look and see if she is stable enough to work on her left hand.
The nurses keep doing a great job of changing her dressings, moving her slightly, and inflating/deflating her bed they got at harboriew. They are feeding her some crazy goo stuff still via her nose to stomach. Not sure exactly what vitamins and minerals is in that. There was some question to that end today. I can find that out tomorrow.
