Clay’s spring break
A VERY puffy Lydia is resting peacefully for now. They’re trying every possible medication to get fluid off her and stabilized. She is able to wake up for a few moments at a time, then drift back off. The heart surgery from a month ago has created too much blood perfusion to her lungs, which is likely the leading cause of all this excess fluid. I have a meeting scheduled on Monday with the cardiac team, surgery team, nurses, NPs, administrative assistants, cleaning crew, elevator technicians, kitchen staff, and two randomly selected strangers from the street. I hope to get a read on the strategy for the next round of whatever.
It’s a beautiful day in Boston, though, and I may allow myself a fun outing today. It is spring break, after all…
