Morning Update

The residents came in earlier this morning. We need Rachel to be drinking more and eating before we can go home today.

Since they left, and the change in nursing shifts has occurred, we discovered Rachel had been under medicated in her pain meds all night long.

To give an idea as to how under medicated she was, she was getting 2 ml when she should have been getting 10 ml.

And then to top it off, to avoid the nasty tasting medicine, she wasn't being truthful when asked about her pain. Grrr.

The meeds have been adjusted and she received a dose about half an hour ago and she is now sleeping. Our hope is that once the pain is under control, she'll feel more like eating and drinking!!
