  Dr. Fortuna Carter's  surgeon stopped in late tonight and tweaked Carters medicines a bit. He removed a large amount of blood from Carter's chest tube drains. The blood return in the drains had inceased for a few hours but is slowing down again. Which is not abnormal. They also do blood work every hour or so at the bedside and Fortuna said his hemoglobin was low so he received a unit of blood. His temperature was up also. It was 101.0 but after some medicine is now 100.3. They also increased pain meds.....yea!!! So he is taking a nap. Daddy is also napping and I think its a good time for me to rest too!!
