Steven's pain has been under control. . . as long as he holds still. He is eating, but to go home we will have to move him, so my best guess is that we will be here another night. He did have a good night--he slept from 10 till 4 with no morphine (but with Lortab) but we wanted to shift him to avoid bedsores around 4, so he got morphine. He has had no trouble going back to sleep all morning as docs and nurses came in. He just told the nurse that he couldn't go home today or tomorrow. This from the kid whose main goal has always been to get out as fast as he could. He was so sure of himself, he must be in some serious pain. Hopefully he will improve faster than he thinks.

Yesterday morning, the kids woke up and started decorating the Christmas tree. He got really excited about ornaments and has been wanting to make some. We did one yesterday while waiting for surgery and he woke up this morning wondering if I finished it and if we could make some ornaments today. Luckily Kids Crew has a craft mecca, so maybe he can do some of that today. Steven is not a crafter, but he is so excited about Christmas.

  1. I am so sorry! My heart aches for Steven and for you as his Mom. I can only image how frustrating this must be for all of you. Hopefully, Dr. J worked his "magic" and made it so Steven will be able to walk this time around:) Hang in there. Please let me know if you guys need anything.
