Twice per day, the nurses monitor Gaines' heart rate. Typically, they monitor for no more than 20 to 30 minutes. This morning, they are keeping Brittany on the monitor for much longer. She has been on the monitor now for over an hour. The biggest concern right now is that Gaines' heart rate is high. A high heart rate can be a sign of infection.
The doctors would like for his heart rate to stay between 120 and 160. Right now it is measuring closer to 170. Please pray for Gaines.
