Steve slept better last night but woke up with an awful coughing fit. We also noticed that his left side was much more sluggish than normal, and he was extremely groggy.
We let the doctors know. After a quick exam, they decided to stop the Heparin drip for now and ordered a CT scan of his head. (He was supposed to start the Heparin injections last night, but the St. Paul pharmacy doesn't stock the injections. They are on order and should be here this afternoon.)
While waiting for the scan, he ate breakfast. I was pleased to see that he was able to swallow with no difficulty. He was also a little more alert after eating.
He's been wheeled away for the CT scan and should be back soon.
I'll update when we have results.
