So, the last few days have been some we wish we could do over....I am sure there would be some things done differently!
Yesterday around 11:00, we were informed that dad was once again going to be moved to the Spaulding Rehabilitation Facility. Needless to say, I was NOT happy!!! I knew that it was a bad idea, but, being across the country from the situation, I couldn't really stop them. The "floor" doctor, or the doctor that does rounds on the floor and knows really nothing about dad or his case, gave the go ahead to move him to the rehab and that is what was done. No one noticed that he was acting strange and very tired.......all the nurses figured he needed a nap. Well, just 3 hours after being moved, dads O2 levels spiked and he needed help breathing. After that evening, he was back AGAIN to the ICU at Brigham and Women's Hopstial! Someones I's were not dotted, and someones T's were not crossed, and dad ended up back on the ventilator for the night!!
This morning, he is off the ventilator, and just got up and walked around the ICU. No answeres yet on what caused his O2 to spike, but I will make sure to update as soon as we have any ideas!
