Tom is doing so much better today! The doctor determined that the reason for his tremors and hallucinations was due to an adverse reaction between two medicines he began taking several days ago. They either stopped both of them or changed one - I don't know.
For some reason the nurses were unable to get Tom's feeding tube in the location it needed to be. They initially inserted it on Friday. Yesterday they took an x-ray and saw that it was curled up inside him. This is a very painful process and it's very disturbing to watch. I'm the only person permitted to be with him, except the medical staff, during this procedure. I can't look at him while it's happening - only hold his hand and try my best to hold back my tears. It's terrible to watch someone you love have to endure so much pain, and not be able to help them in any way.
Anyway, he had to have the tube reinserted THREE different times yesterday. The nurses finally sent him to the radiology department and let them insert it precisely where it needed to be. His throat will probably be sore for a while.
Physical therapy began yesterday. Baby steps....
