Day Four (Perhaps Some Light)

I don't want to jinx it... but maybe we're turning a corner in here.  Keanut went to bed around midnight after getting a dose of morphine.  His oxygen alarms went off about five times that first hour of sleep.  After that his nurse came in, adjusted things and voila'... we both actually got some sleep in here.  Make that some... I woke up but he barely stirred during all the vital checks throughout the night.  His oxygen dipped a few times but the sweet nurse came in before I could get up.  And here's the most important signal he's giving us that maybe the pain is decreasing:  he woke up without crying-- the way my sweet baby boy used to wake up before this ugly experience.  He is back asleep now.  His awake time only lasted about 5 minutes... but I'm hopeful and as a bonus, a bit more rested. (Exhale deep breath here)!
