Good thoughts needed here!

Everything that doesn't fit anywhere else!

As of yesterday, he is "doing alright" for a man who is allergic to anesthesia, and body can't handle pain medication. Vito is still very groggy, but he is lucid. They tried to get him to sit up, but the pain was too great. Again, they have to monitor how much pain meds he gets, so the Dr's walk a thin line of TOO much or not ENOUGH.

And yes, he will need to quit smoking. It caused another component of the poor circulation.

The good news is that his actual heart is 'perfect'. :dance:

Vito is not healing as well as anticipated. :( He should be "up and walking around a little" and maybe even home by now. He is still not able to sit up for long periods in his bed. It has to do with his pain medication, which he has a bad reaction to. Without enough pain meds, he is obviously in serious pain.

When you read this, please send a quick POSITIVE THOUGHT towards him. The family is very stressed out right not. :(

good thoughts. Maybe it will just take him a little longer with his progress...

Well, he is finally UP and trying to MOVE around. It seems he has a low tolerance to medications in general, and the different shifts working would see he was in pain and give him MORE, which made him more out of it.
