8/19/06 Saturday 27 Days Post Accident

            You have been placed on a Fentanyl patch to help with your pain.  When I walked in your room you had a full liquid diet tray on your bedside table.  This is progress.

            The nurse allowed me to change and pack your abdominal dressing today.  The wound looks really good and is healing nicely.  The team has started counting the calorie you are taking in.  This is good because if you can take enough calories in you may be able to get rid of your stomach tube you were getting feedings through.
