Unless something happens overnight, this is probably my last update for the night.

His blood pressure is up again & now his heart rate is up & staying up. They drew a bunch of labs but they all came back normal. On the one hand, it's good news. On the other, it offers no clues as to what's going on. So they just gave him some Tylenol to see if it helps at all which would indicate that it's pain related. If we don't get much response from that, they'll give another dose of morphine. He may require more diagnostic imaging tomorrow to make sure there's no swelling in his brain. The surgeons don't think that's the issue, but they want to rule everything out. His rhythm looks good & normal, so they don't think it's an issue with his actual heart. It's just a matter of figuring out what it is, so they can treat it.
