Candace, I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. Unfortunately, Dan's breathing hard and failure to settle might indicate pain, anxiety, or both but those are nonspecific symptoms and unless other symptoms arise leave us without knowing why Dan is behaving in that manner. May I have an update on Dan please?
