One of Jameson's new medications is causing low blood pressure and in order to correct it he had to get a new artery line, a new IV and one more medication.  His poor body now has iv's in both hands, one foot, and his neck.  While the pokes are not great, the medication is keeping him in a stable and somewhat comfortable state and that is great.
He actually had to get a second tree for all of his medication pumps.  That means there are three different computers with 10 different pumps all pumping meds, fluids, transfusions into J- but not all at the same time. And that isn't including the pump for the food going straight into his intestine or the huge computer regulating his oxygen.  I don't know how the nurses keep it all straight.  They are saints!
