Late/Early Post

Sorry for not getting this up yesterday. Cody had commandeered my laptop to play Webkinz. Yesterday was good and kinda bad. Good in the sense that it was the easiest day Cody has had while on 3f8. It was kinda bad because other than a slightly elevated heart rate at times Cody seemed to have very little pain. By now you all know what that could mean. They did use Morphine on him yesterday instead of Dilaudid. Dilaudid is supposed to be many times stronger than Morphine and fewer side effects like itching. He seemed to do much better but that was with no rescues. It is very hard to try and control his pain and at the same time try and minimize his rage and anger issues. We shall see today.

Thanks for reading..

It seems almost bad to hope that Cody has pain. I know in the back of your mind that are thinking he is going to HAMA but perhaps it was just a one day thing. Think positive! We will too.
We got the Christmas Cards the other day and we are glad we went with the matte finish. They look great. Well, I will hold it down for you here. Take care and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Wait and see what happens today. Maybe he just does better with one type of pain med than the other. We will keep praying that he is not HAMA.

I too got my sets of Christmas cards the other day and I really like they way they came out. Now I just need to figure out what to say inside and who gets which card.
