Adam was admitted last night. They are doing extensive blood work and urine analysis. These tests will show if he has any sort of infection or has been exposed to any chemicals. We are in a room on the neurology floor, and the doctor that is doing rounds this morning just happens to be the doctor that specializes in tics.
The blood work was very upsetting for him (although I'm the one that almost passed out when all that blood was drawn). So far his CBC (complete blood count) came back normal, which means it is unlikely he has an infection.
He was up later than he has ever been last night. We didn't get moved to a room until after ten and it was past midnight when we were done visiting with the new doctors and settled in for sleep. He was up at 6:30 this morning (normally sleeps til 8am). They expect the doctor to see him by 9am.
They left a pic line in so they don't have to stick him again if they need more blood. He is like me and cannot stand it. He says it makes his arm feel weak, which is the way I remember feeling when I've had to have them. After all the trauma from last night, he doesn't want any doctors or nurses touching him. When his vitals were taken at 4am, he swatted the woman's arm and said, "Hey! What ya doin'?" in an irritated voice before falling back to sleep.
I will update when we know something.
