Today was a bad day for Dad. This a.m. I called to check on him and the nurse requested my Mom and I come down to sit with him to help calm him down. He was sooo confused, sleep deprived, and under that terrible icu psychosis. Everybody was against him and slicing him everywhere etc soo he thought. I felt soo helpless sitting there holding his hand and just seeing him hallucinate soo bad.
He was moved out of sicu into a private huge room that is sooo quiet and right at the nurses station. He has a 24hour sitter which is going to help him and help us sleep better at night. I hope the confusion will improve with a good nights sleep.
