I hope you all enjoyed a good night's sleep, because none of us did! Drew didn't sleep very well at all, at first for only 20-30 minutes at a time, and then for up to an hour at a time. Dan did the first shift and I tried to sleep from 10:30 pm to 2:30 am. The sleep room was freezing, but I was by myself at first. Then just as I was falling asleep around midnight, this dad came in and started talking to me! I think I may have gotten two hours of sleep and then woke up again because he was snoring! Tonight I'm going to have warm jammies, earplugs, and sleep medication. I came and relieved Dan and he got back around 6:30 this morning. He didn't have a problem sleeping, but still feels like four hours isn't quite enough.
Drew doesn't seem like himself. At first I thought he was drugged, but he hadn't had anything for a while. I asked the nurse about it, and she said it could be all the sedation meds he was on when he was intubated taking a while to wear off. I think it might just be his way of dealing with things. He is blocking everything out. He won't answer us when we ask him questions, he doesn't want to play with toys, watch movies, and now he doesn't even want to drink his juice or eat his yogurt. It's really hard to see him so sad, but I guess I wouldn't be very happy either if I was in his hospital bed. Child Life came by and brought him some toys and a blanket and he responded to her a little bit, so maybe he's just mad at us for bringing him here.
They plan to take the RA line out this morning, but we're still waiting on platelets from the blood bank before they can start. I think they've also turned his oxygen down a bit to 4 liters. That's all for now. Please pray for Drew's little spirit.
