Two nights in a row it has evaded him. Then it becomes a battle during the daytime to keep him awake. It doesn't seem like this new med is working. So discouraging knowing that we gave up a perfect sleep med...even if it was for good reasons. I'm mourning it's loss. Tonight Ben actually fell asleep around 6pm, before he even received his meds. It will be interesting to see how long he stays asleep tonight. Tomorrow we are scheduled to leave. Ben's going home with his PICC line and I'll be giving him his antibiotics for the next 10 days. Not something I'm foreign to considering I myself have had over 11 PICC's in my lifetime. He's not even close to coming off the vent yet, I'm suspecting that will take a few more weeks considering his vent settings are higher than at home. BUT we're going home. It's a good thing.
