Still Here

Well, we are still in the hospital. Unfortunately, our reality was that Mason just wasn’t ready to go home today. He is still in a lot of pain and moving even the slightest is excruciating most of the time. We are still working toward a balance of oral pain meds that will allow him to come home comfortably. We made some progress today and are still working toward weaning him from IV pain meds. Another major reason we had to stay is that one of the many cultures drawn finally grew some bacteria. That meant we had to start antibiotic #4 since surgery and be monitored closely. Pray he doesn’t end up with C Diff because of this. He has very little appetite, but says his stomach feels fine. He wouldn’t have eaten anything at all today if he had his preference. He got a few bites in all day long. He’s pretty grumpy and on edge because of the pain. I miss my sweet boy. His physical therapist has become his enemy, but he is making slow but steady progress. He used a walker for the first time today to transfer from the bed to the wheelchair. This really is no life for a 9-year-old. I trust each day will get easier at this point. We have to get him more mobile soon. We leave for New York on the 12th!  We are so hopeful for good news. #PrayForMason

  1. Praying each day brings less challenges and more steps in the direction of healing. I cannot imagine all that he has had to bear and how hard it is for you to see him in such pain. Praying for pain relief for Mason.


  2. You are all weathering a storm that no one can imagine. Your strong faith will lead all of you through this. When God takes you to it, He will see you through it. Prayers, prayers and more prayers are being lifted daily!


  3. Awww sorry to hear about the pain. Praying it decreases more each day & that therapy increases his mobility. Hang in there.
