I only slept a few hours last night, and that is stretching it. I am having an issue with low blood pressure, which is probably from the pain medicine. The doc on call has been trying to get it to go back up by pushing fluids, but no luck so far. If it is the medicine causing the low pressure, it’s not helping that I am pressing the Fentanyl button pretty often. The docs said that I need to press it if I’m in pain, so they can figure out what dose works best for me. So hopefully once the pain management team comes they’ll be able to figure it out!
UPDATE: orthopedic team just came in to check me and said that the x-rays came back and were good, which I assume means there are no fractures. They want to do another MRI of my pelvis, which means another night in the hospital! I’m annoyed that I have to be here, but I’m hopeful that we will figure out where the pain is coming from…
Jennifer, I hope they get to the bottom of your pain and can give you some relief. Glad Laura is there to support you. The whole Wise clan and beyond is praying for you and Ange. Lots of love and hugs.
