Two steps forward...one step back

OT and PT came and worked with Darren today. He did GREAT!

 Darren sat in bed UNASSISTED and played with toys!

Darren STOOD at the side of the bed and played with toys!

We also went to the playroom on this floor and played with toys!

It was soooo GOOD to see Darren playing with his hands and being able to use his legs. It was scary to see how the surgery and drugs have effected our little guy :(

And one step back....Darren is throwing up after we give him his oral meds. He takes pain med and a couple other replacements this way. They gave him anti-nausea meds and then a stronger anti-nausea med. to help with the nausea. They wanted to completely turn off his morphine, but since we can't get his other pain med. into him orally right now they left that on (only after I asked them to!)

He is also getting some fluid through his IV...they were hoping he would drink today, but with the throwing up they didn't want him to get dehydrated.

Darren cuddling with a teddy bear that our church sent to the hospital and tired after a BIG morning/early afternoon of playing!

Blessings, Sandy

  1. I notice that he still has that package of gum in his hand. :-( He looks pathetic. Poor little one. I'm not looking forward to this.
