Too Close

14 Mar

News on my Uncle Danny:

He went code blue at the hospital this afternoon.  He was in the bathroom, leaned forward, and then his head dropped back, his eyes glazed over, and he fell.  The nurses couldn’t find his pulse and they were sure he had died.  We now think that his Adderall (to keep him calm) dosage was too high and so when his blood pressure dropped, which it had been doing, he passed out.  Because he was kept so “calm” by the drug, his pulse was so weak that they couldn’t find it at first.

Now we are just hoping he can get well enough to go to Houston and start his experimental drug therapy.

He’s okay.  For now, he’s okay.
