Tom did pretty well off his sedation for most of the morning but became very agitated in the afternoon. He definitely knew when family was here today. They did have to put him on a little sedation in the later afternoon but they are hoping they can keep it minimal and wean him back of it tomorrow. They are hoping to just take the edge off overnight. Keep you fingers crossed. They are still working out a few kinks with his electrolytes and fluid balance but most of his labs continue to improve. Infectious disease decided that his rash is a drug reaction to one of his antibiotics so they stopped it today. Inevitably he now has thrush in his mouth so they are swabbing him with Nystatin. We are watching American Idol right now...I think he would be calmer if they weren't singing Elvis songs tonite. Hope to have even better news tomorrow.
Good night all.
