Morning rounds 10:00am May 23rd

Rounds time.  Well, last night Owen was kind of irritable.  His renal stats have been lower than usual and his pulse ox has been lower as well (they took him off of oxygen last night).  They have decided to give Owen 10ml/kg of blood, which means he will be getting between 40 and 50ml of blood total.  Because Owen was more irritable last night and they are going to be giving him some blood, they decided that it probably wouldn't be a good idea for us to take him home today, they don't want us to have to bring him back down if something happens.  They are also going to be taking a blood pressure on each limb to see if there is any difference where his blood pressure is taken.  On the catheterization yesterday, there was some differential pressure in the aorta and they want to see if that will translate into differential pressure in his extremities.  So hopefully only one more day in the hospital.  I hope this transfusion does the trick and brings his stats back up and calms him down a little bit, we want to go back home.
