Thursday going on Friday Repeat!
On Wednesday at 3.00 am a roof tile in Iain's room disintigrated and proceeded to drip nasty brown liquid on poor Elodie, Iain's nurse. Although she dealt with it calmly without waking Iain up, by 7 am the ICU team decided that it would be too risky to let Iain stay in that room so he moved down the hall and then actually got downgraded (or is it upgraded?) to floor status as he seemed to be doing quite well. That, of course, was the kiss of death, as he his SATs started to trend downwards and by yesterday he was having trouble breathing, could not get a break from the secretions, had a temperature and the nausea came back with a vengence. By the evening, his doctor Rachel, decided she wanted him back and so although his room is the same, he is back in the CICU service. Prevailing thought is that he may have pneumonia and is being treated for that.
