Waiting Game

Mr. Boy was taken off the paralytic drug Saturday and has started to twitch and move his limbs slightly. This has helped take his swelling down and he is looking much more like himself. He is still very sedated and they give him continuous doses of pain meds, but he grimaces with each movement, which is hard to watch. His eyes have opened ever-so slightly from time to time. He is still on the breathing ventilator and will be for a few days to weeks (nothing is ever certain with these things). They say that by Tuesday we will not need to worry as much about Mr Boy waking up and possibly busting everything back open by squeezing his muscles, so needless to say, we are excited to get to Tuesday.

We are both dreading and longing for him to wake up, but are so nervous about the pain. I think about the pain with my c-section and think if I multiply that by 10..... ugh. But some things we've learned about Mr Boy is that he is strong and he is in the Lord's merciful hands.

So thank God for his marvelous love for his miracle to the children he loves. Offer thanksgiving sacrifices. Tell the world what he's done-sing it out!
