The hiccups continue...not sure the cause. Bryan does have small breaks. He says those occur with peristalsis, obviously related to digestion; or could be a tumor pushing against the diaphragm. Guess, guess, guess.
Last night was a repeat of Wednesday--two hours after we began his TPN he started shivering with a fever and had elevated blood sugar. We called the infusion nurse, he would pass the information on to the pharmacist on call. Three day weekends make it difficult to communicate effectively with medical personnel. Anyhow, fever is gone this morning, we finished the TPN. It seems if it was an infection it wouldn't improve over time, only get worse. It seems that would be the case, I'm only the wife; the frustrated with medical practice wife.
A negative post--sorry--I should have spent time in the Word first. Off to do just that!
