In the words of the attending ICU physician, we need to put our eggs in one basket right now. In other words, we need to focus on the bleeding or the clots. Since the clots are a "potential" source of danger and the bleeding is actively putting Eddie in harm's way, we will spend our energy on the latter . . . his bleeding is definitely the priority
Right now, Eddie is resting quietly and seems comfortable. We are leaving him on the ventilator for now . . . at least until we can get the afternoon ECHOs.
