Can you say...

Isolation?
I've been secretly hoping that something comes back from Olivia's cultures. Just for a possible cause to all of this. What do we get back...Acinetobacter baumannii in her urine. Huh?
Whatever.
So we are in isolation. We have to wear the lovely yellow gowns and gloves. I can't stand touching her with gloves on, so I'm kind of slacking in that department. I've promised not to touch her pee - since she has a catheter, that shouldn't be too hard ;o)
Otherwise, she is actually tolerating weaning down her vasopressin (yes, I'm knocking on wood). All of her numbers are great today! Could it be that she is ready to start cooperating with everyone's plans?!? Only time will tell...

Ahh...the gorgeous yellow gowns. Hopefully now they found something it can be effectively dealt with. Keep up the hard work Olivia!
