Gave Dan 1 pain pill at 6:15 p.m. last evening when he thought the block was wearing off. Another at 8; another at 9:30 + 2 ibuprofen. He was pacing and rating his pain at a 10. Called his surgeon. Gave him 2 more pain pills and 2 ibuprofen at 11:15 but the pain was still 10. Had to take him to the ER in Wahoo for first IM and then IV pain medication. One of the blood pressures they took while he was still rating his pain at a 9-10 was 204/106. They kept him there for a few hours. I came home and slept for 2 1/2 hrs. and then went and picked him up. I gave him 2 Percocet at 0730 and he is finally sleeping.
