CODE BLUE and a Cervical Collar and Trach Site update!
Posted Feb 27 2010 12:00am
Yesterday morning at 2:00 AM the code blue alarm was sounded and Advantage ambulance rushed me lights and sirens on to Lutheran General Childrens Hospital with the same stroke like symptoms as the first Baclofen pump failure .
I was rushed to CT scan to check the pump, those results are not back to us yet. Pulmonary crisis was as a result of the pump failure we think though cultures are being run and the full smurf protocol is being followed.
By he way the Cervical Collar is such a help with my trach hole issue, now it leaks soo much less. I will have a photo of the site soon, the hole is less than 1/4th its original size!!!
And its comfortable!!! once I get all the adjustments down.
Last night for sleep was broken cause of hot flashes, and the monitor constantly alarming.
