Not doing so well

September 9, 2007 at 12:19 pm

Nate is still in the hospital. His kidneys are responding now but he has had a horrible pain in one side of his head and the back of his head.
The doctor is worried that some of the infection leaked into his Central Nervous System or is causing increased Cranial Pressure.
Nate is in really bad pain that only gets just a bit better right after they inject Dilaudid into his IV. That makes him sleepy but he only sleeps off and on for a couple of hrs, then the pain comes back.
I hate to see him like this. Its awful.
They did an MRI with contrast yesterday which made him itch. Then they sent in a Neurologist who ordered a Lumbar Puncture last night.
I don’t particularly like the guy but if he can figure out what is making the pain and make it go away, thats ok with me.
He didn’t have the results last night so he left. Hopefully we will find out something today. This is hard not knowing. I feel very helpless and so does Nate.
