What do I do? I tryed everything. I tried hugging him. No touching. He eventually ended up on the floor, throwing himself about threatening to pull his IV out. I asked the nurse to please double check the correct dose of steroids was given. She quickly went to check. It was the same as he has always gotten. I then asked her to maybe page the doctors and see what they think. He has been mad before and hard to deal with before, but nothing like this.
Then the lunch tray came in. I quickly snatched it from the nurse and lifted the top to show him his cheeseburger he had been asking for all morning. I showed him the ketchup and how he could dip his fries in it. He went from 90 miles an hour to about 25 miles an hour in 15 seconds.
Cancel that page to the doctors.
Now those were some serious steroid munchies. I just needed something to reset the switch. Thank you cheeseburger.
