Bev Report 13: detox
Well, the surgeon decided to switch Bev from IV drip pain meds to oral this morning. Just like that. No transition. Can you say "catastrophic detox"? She was a total wreck inside of four hours. When I got there the hospital psych was there and they were giving her something for anxiety, amongst other things. The pain Doc showed up a few minutes later and had a fit...then put her back on the machine. Tomorrow they'll continue weaning her from IV to oral meds. Gradually.
