Dad remains about the same. He is so heavily sedated he is completly out of it. Like he is in a deep, deep sleep. They will keep him this way to let the ventilator do its work. Occasionally he will rouse, but not often. It is very uncomfortable for him to wake up. We are thankful for this deep sleep. Hopefully they will try to wean him off the vent a little today.
They added another pic line yesterday to keep from having to stick him so much. The iv they put in his arm on Thursday had to be removed today. It can only stay in 3 days so in order to alleviate another i.v. they just did the pic-line. I guess that is a good thing. I am ready for my daddy to wake up and be well. I am scheduled to fly home on Tuesday night, but am anxious about leaving my mom. I think she really needs someone to be with her at all times. It is easy to become overwhelmed when you are alone. Nicki is supposed to fly in on Tuesday. Pray that works out for her to come. Please pray specifically that dad's well enough to come of the vent by Monday. He has had no more episodes of svt since Friday. Thank you Jesus.
