Still Doing Great

Connie has had a whole carton of chocolate milk, over 150cc's of orange juice and several saltines. He fell asleep waiting on his food from "room service". His biggest issue today has been an itchy face. He's been sitting up to eat and drink and been very responsive to our requests like asking if we can give his monkey a kiss. He's enjoying watching Max and Ruby and Wall-E in between napping. We'll start weaning the morphine drip this afternoon after that dex wears off completely so we can see what his baseline is for pain. He just got his benadryl and is snoozing again. It's so nice to have him back!

Sounds like you have a bit of smooth sailing ahead. I'm so excited about the progress. Still praying that he continues down this path.
We love you.

Great news!! We are so proud of him. You know it is the morphine causing that itchy face. Hopefully the Benadryl will help. I am soooo glad to hear he is eating so well!!
Keep up the great work Conway!!!!
