Ok maybe its lack of sleep talking but I got a little tickled. My husband woke up with Versa and 200mg Fentanyl and wanted to tell me and the nurse that his teeth were cutting into his upper lip. He began drawing doodles and getting frustrated as we played dictionary trying to figure out what he was trying to say. Finally he asked for his cell phone and took 10 minutes to text teeth cutting upper lip. Ok so maybe it doesn't sound funny now, but if you knew my husband you would understand. He has to communicate and he was determined we were going to listen. I hope he gets out of ICU tomorrow. They tried letting him breath on his own, but his rates went way down so back to breathing with the ventilator.
