More on Saturday

Eric is resting right now, which allows me a moment to post a note. When he's awake, he keeps us busy wanting his dry/erase board, his feet rubbed, his fan off, his fan on, the TV on, the TV off, a cool cloth on his forehead, his nurse for suctioning or sedation, and endless sponges of water to moisten his mouth and occasional sips of a flavored drink drizzled into his mouth from a straw. Flavor of the day -- Sprite. Yesterday was lemonade. Tomorrow, he's already decided, will be Orange Crush. He's restless when awake. Anxious. In attempt to wean from the morphine, the doctor changed his med to Vicadin. And he still gets Ativan occasionally too.

The visit from his teacher seemed to help his mood somewhat. He was more agreeable to attempting deep breaths, and seemed to truly enjoy her visit.

BRAVO for Ms. Defelice! Praise God for Ms. Defelice!

Aunt Lisa said...

Yes, thank you Ms. Defelice. I'll pray for Eric's mind to be filled with all the things he can't wait to get back to and his motivation to make it happen.

We are so glad to hear that Eric is moving forward. When my kids have an obstacle to overcome, one of the other ones will sing the "Dory" song from Nemo. "Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming."

Okay Eric, it isn't easy going upstream against the current, but you must JUST KEEP SWIMMING!

Continued prayers for all of you.
