Pain management

Afternoon update : she's not doing very well. Severe headache. According to our wonderful nurse Ethel who has seen a lot of this, the pain waxes and wanes after brain surgery Meagan was trying to manage with Tylenol but the pain is too much and she couldn't even sleep. So she's agreed with all her men and is on to morphine. Well she wasn't exactly coherent but we decided and she didn't disagree The doc authorized up to 4 somethings she started with 1 and now she's finally asleep. We can keep escalating dose if she needs it. They are also looking into other things. She's never been great with narcotics due to nausea but hopefully we can find a balance. It's a relief to see her out actually.
