Kirsten is doing great! Her hemoglobin counts are climbing, which indicates that she is most likely not bleeding internally. She continues to be connected to the EEG machine for monitoring. Soni and the girls visited briefly tonight.
We need more days like today (except without any scares).
I walked in to Kirsten’s room in SCU 4 to find her nurse, Kathy, and Maggie chatting with her. Kirsten’s hemoglobin counts fell, so she was given another unit of blood. They’re continuing to monitor her for possible internal bleeding.
I stood in rounds today with the doctors as they discussed Kirsten and their plans for her. Nothing worth noting.
Kirsten is still on the EEG. The neurologist would like for her to have another episode of delirium before discontinuing monitoring. I doubt it’s going to happen. At least talk of seizure activity has decreased. Perhaps my persistence is paying off. If they don’t find anything from the EEG, I’m going to request they remove her from the Levetiracetam.
