Quick update- at the moment Ted is still ventilated but comes in and out of consciousness where he tries to remove his breathing tube.
He has had to be restrained. It is very sad to see the white bandages tying his arms down.
He has mouthed the words “mama” and “drink” and he nodded when I asked him if he was ok.
He is on severe fluid restrictions his heart will not tolerate the load so we have to keep saying no to any requests for fluid.
Apparently once the breathing tube is out he has another four hours without fluid then can have 10ml per hour.
This will not go down well with poor Ted. A long night awaits us.
The wonderful ICU teammate watching his numbers carefully. He is critical but in the best hands.
I will update any significant changes.
