Hello and Happy Thanksgiving!
Two days ago Teddy's Morphine was increased to 200mg twice a day with a breakthrough of 50mg as needed. Yesterday was our worst day yet as we had trouble getting the pain under control in the morning. That is OK now and the Nurse ordered him an electric mattress that is much firmer than the Hospital one and it mas a massaging motion. Fabulous for his back pain! BUT, we can't get rid of the dreams (most are weird) and I notice when I check on him that he is even dreaming with his eyes open. When I see that I wake him up. He says he is actually seeing these dreams happen in the room. He is on Haldol (sp) and until 2 days ago did pretty good with it. It just doesn't seem to be working anymore. Any suggestions? He is not getting much sleep day or night with these intruders!
