All is Well

I see improvement in Ethan each day. He is still very clingy and doesn't like to do any one thing for more than 10 minutes. I've started stretching out his Lortab doses but I've been giving the Motrin whenever it is due. I've heard of a couple of babies having withdrawal issues after all of the pain medications that they get with heart surgery and I want to avoid that if I can. However, if Ethan appears uncomfortable I don't hold out. He gets what he wants.

I feel like I am starting to catch up on some much needed sleep. I haven't been able to take any naps yet, but I am sleeping better at night. It's amazing how much it easier it is to deal with life when you are rested.

I appreciate all of you and your support.

Of course we are keeping up...sometimes three or four times a day... We love that he is doing so well, your little man never was much of a trouble maker... He is so darling... I understand the withdrawl thing... Alex was tolerant of Adavan and it was really hard to she his convulsions and crying. We got down to .01 ml not even a drop before he was okay... The clingy thing is Alex now..We have a sling that I wear most of the day with him in it.... I just drag the o2 coard around and he "hangs" out...We will keep praying for you. It is funny to hear Ry say.. "bless Ethan and ethan and ethan and ian and alex and alex... She gets everyone confused.... Good luck.. Brynn
