    Linda,
    It was just so good to see a post from you and learn that there seems to be a good explanation for this morning's events. We are sitting on pins and needles awaiting news from you.

    You are quite a trooper, dear one, and your Dave is quite a guy!!!!

    All the best,
    GJ and NL

      I hope they find the problem soon! Try to get a good night's rest. Easier said than done, I know.

                  This is so puzzling as no history of high blood sugar or diabetis.
                  It is coming down slower than they hoped, but he looks and feels so much better.
                  A couple of his old nurses saw the kids bringing his vent down the hall and popped in to say hi. Wonderful RTs.
                  A snafu with the meds and very hectic here. ER was like the wild west of drama.
                  One of the nurses pointed out it is a full moon.
                  I think it is going to be a long night of people in and out of here.
                  We were first told he would be going to the newer part of the hospital which would have been better. Vent/trach patients have to be on the step down floor where there are the more serious things.
                  Thanks again for your positve thoughts.

                      Oh crud. I know he must have been pretty bad off if you'd decide it was better to go to the hospital; we all know how clueless and inattentive they can be. I'm glad to hear it looks like they found the explanation, so hopefully you can get out of there quickly!

                          Continued good thoughts coming your way. I know how stressful it is to have him in the hospital.

                            Hope they find the source of the problem quickly. Try to get some rest and take care of yourself.

                                Have they checked out Dave's pancreas, Linda? Sometimes blood sugar issues can be difficult to trace and there are some unusual but treatable conditions that can cause problems. It's important to understand the reason for the spike, since he's had no such difficulties in the past and his blood sugar is coming down slower than expected.
