Dad is critical but stable after the op, they are going to try weaning him off the morphine today. They want to see how he handles being off the ventilator. His low blood pressure is still the main
concern, we need to see an improvement to show that he is responding to the treatment.

Slow progress, but things are improving slightly. Blood pressure has come up a bit, and they have lessened the morphine. Not a nice phase, he is more aware of his discomfort (ventilator etc) and he is trying to struggle a bit. I say we need to get rid of that ventilator next… baby steps.
