Healthy Heart Club, Update 4

SHE'S A GRUMPY GIRL DON'T TOUCH HER MOM AND DAD NEED SLEEP SEND HELP

Our little wiggle monster had an okay first night. She was very restless, trying to find that fine line of just the right amount of sedation.

She is on Fentanyl (among many others), a narcotic pain killer, which causes itchy skin, especially in the nose and face. Poor thing will stop at nothing to scratch her nose, which she literally rubbed raw last night with a sock-covered hand.

Should be an interesting sock puppet show today.

Make sure they are really monitoring her on that fent. drug. That is the drug our son was overdosed on. The doctors said he had such a fine line of not enough and to much. Stay strong Lucy! Your a warrior.
