Post-Op Day 1

Approx 9:30 am

Luke's cardiac numbers are still solid. The numbers that measure kidney function are a little elevated, and he's fluid positive so they are upping his diuretics today. They are planning on taking him off of his Precedex (sedation) drip and will mange pain through as needed doses. They also plan to take out his RA (right arterial) line today and his Art (arterial) line tomorrow. That will allow him to get up out of bed. It really hurts him to cough, and so we have a really rough time every time he needs to clear some secretions. Please continue to pray that we head in the right direction, avoid infection, and keep his pain under control.
