In ICU *Day 4*

John had a hard night last evening. He threw up what little he did eat and had a hard time getting comfortable while he was in pain.
He was able to get his ace bandage off- he wanted that off "'cause it itches". He has a regular bandage on the back of his head now.
The physical therapist said he is too stiff and needs to do more exercises. A good thing that happened this morning -he got his catheter out.
Pray that John will hold food. The doctor who came in this morning said if he can't hold food they will have to put in a feeding tube tomorrow.
12:20pm -John took his first steps with the therapist around his room. Another painful milestone accomplished. It's hard to watch him in so much pain.
3:15pm - He has been sleeping for while, peacefully. We like to see more of that. Still doesn't eat or drink enough.
7:00pm - John threw up again. It looks like he may have the feeding tube put in. Pray that won't be needed. We are ready to get rid of tubes not get more. God knows best!
10:00pm- John threw once more. The nurses are going to try to help him with a swich around in medicines.
