A Quick Update This Morning

I talked with Mom this morning and she told me that during the night Dad's heart rate went up to 170 and was irregular. He ended up having to have a second IV put in so he could be given medication to bring this down. If this medication doesn't keep his heart rate down, he will have to be put on a continuous drip medication for it. His heart rate is currently being monitored. As long as things don't get worse he can remain on the neurology floor. But Mom was told that during the night he came close to having to go back to the Critical Care Unit.

He is also going to be taken in today for another CT Scan after this episode in the night. He didn't rest well through the night so is rather sleepy today. I will post more later today as I know more.
