NPO – nil per oram, nothing by mouth, is a doctor’s order not to administer anything by mouth – food or medicine. So for two days now, Melit stopped taking Leviteracetam, the anticonvulsant she had been taking. We were worried and in fact asked the nurse if we can give Keppra but the NPO still stands as the Open to Drain is still going on.
The first sign was the gnashing of her teeth which Dr. Sena called Bruxism. The she had several siezures. Her mouth was bleeding so we had to put an oral guard, which of course Melit rejected.
So, today, Melit is fighting a septicemia and is having siezure. But she survives the day!
Numbers of the day: 22,000 – WBC!
