Tense but hanging in there!

Reagan was still a little agitated last night but eventually calmed down with the help of Lortab (that clonidine...we never know when she's going to have a negative reaction to it)! I woke up at 2am to the sound of her pump beeping, thankfully it didn't wake her up! She was sleeping, but restless, and that's probably how she ended up with her tubing wrapped around her arm (which resulted in a kink, hence the beeping)! When I got back from my run at 7am, she was still sleeping (eyes were closed), but she was moving around a lot. By the time I got out of the shower, she was up! She was in a decent mood, still tense, but calm. She did freak out a bit this morning when I was talking to her nurse! Definitely didn't like us talking around her...she just wants us to talk TO her! I managed to calm her down fairly quickly and she was fine the rest of the morning. She didn't have a super successful session of speech (go figure), but she did do pretty well with PT. Her nurse used some of the "Relaxing" essential oil spray we got the other day and she really think it helped settle her down when she was getting worked up! Hoping we can keep her calm but if she's going to go there, it's better she gets it out of her system over the weekend! We've got a super busy week next week!
