Even Tiny Superheroes need some rest! Owen has been doing well since we came over to CVAcute. He has won over all of his new nurses and respiratory therapists. Mommy has been sleeping at the hospital every night and getting used to having to be “on” at all hours of the day. They weaned Owen’s Dilaudid again yesterday and he’s been struggling a little bit. He is down to receiving it only twice a day and tomorrow we will be weaning him off and only giving him “rescue” doses should he show signs of withdrawal. It’s so close to being done and we can’t wait till he is no longer dependent on it. Watching your 3 month old having heavy narcotic withdrawals is one of the toughest things to do. We will not miss Dilaudid… Owen might, but we will definitely rejoice! As we had expected feeding is a big challenge and takes time. We are taking it a feeding at a time and noticing that Owen is advancing by one ml every day. At this rate he will be at full feeds when he is ready to enter college. All joking aside we would love your prayers in this arena. It is exhausting and can be discouraging. Owen gets frustrated or wants to play instead of “work” for his food. We know he can feel our emotions and it just makes it that much more difficult. Please pray for him as he learns how to feed and becomes free of Dilaudid. This is our last hurdle to get to the “H” word! We can do it!
