The Night Shift

For tonight, our plan is for Shelley “I be there” Labree to be with Joey for the first part of the night and for Momma R to stay with him for the second half. They are going to watch his respirations. I intend to go home, pop an ativan and hopefully get a good sleep so that I can take a shift tomorrow. At least that will make for a couple nights of people watching to make sure that he is okay.

Tonight the pain doc guaranteed Joey that he would be safe when he increased the dosage on his continuous infusion (the goal is to be stable on the continuous infusion and not need the breakthrough pain medication. This helps to avoid peaks and valleys. The aim is to not need the breakthroughs; the hope with this is to end up taking less pain medication overall). The pain doctor said he guaranteed Joey would be safe at this dosage. Joey stuck out his hand for a shake. In Joey’s assessment, the doc either means it, or is a really good poker player. Let’s hope for the former.
