Two more lines down

A nurse practitioner took out the two iv's in Connie's feet earlier this evening. One was clogged and we did both in anticipation that he might go for a walk later. Still being on a morphine drip seems to make him not such a great candidate for walking himself and he didn't exactly jump out of bed when I mentioned it so we'll try it tomorrow after the morphine is turned off. He's sleeping now and thankfully after 25 solid minutes of screaming, the six month old next to us was wheeled out in a stroller to be watched at the nurses station. Hopefully they keep her out there all night ;) I know the mom has to go pick up her other kids and arrange care for them and they live three hours away, but she said the dad was laid off so not exactly sure why he can't stay to comfort her. They are the only ones who can get her back to sleep in her crib!

Erin and Greg, thanks for all the updates and I loved the video. You guys need to write a book and title it "Our Miracle Boy". You both and of course Connie have been through soooo much. I am so impressed and brought to tears by all you have endured and continue to keep the Faith as you should and need to. Connie is such a testament of God's Love. Take care of him and yourselves. We will be praying for his continued recovery. Get back home to us soon. Glad you are back in MOPS. Will miss you Fri. One other thing, your family pix were so good! Very nice family, I know you're proud. Love and Prayers, Marsia Ek
