Well, he never fell asleep at 8. He acted again like he needed to poop but was having trouble. It's so hard to get the timing right on everything. We wanted to give him a suppository, but then we don't want him to poop on the cotton balls in his diaper that he hasn't peed on yet. They want to collect the pee (doesn't have to be sterile) to do cultures. No fever or anything, just standard. So, we have to wait for the suppository. Then he was due for his digoxin but she's afraid to give it and then do his needle stick because we don't want him to throw it up. He was acting tired again so I said let's just go ahead and do the stick and then give the dig and then let him sleep. So that's what we did. We sat him up and hung his leg over the side of the bed and she got blood pretty easily from his toe. He cried, but not constantly and not as hard as the times in the past. I think he likes Nurse Molly:) He was so brave he got a basketball sticker and stuck it right on his gown. Now he's watching an Elmo video in bed and thinking about a nap.
