Finally Calm :)

He has finally calmed down and he is currently being fed. Yipee! It looks like the combination of suctioning his nose and mouth, 8:00 medications, and just plain exhaustion has put him into a slumber. His blood work came back with some slight abnormalities (low platelets I think) but nothing to explain his irritability. We still are waiting for the urine test results and PH-level. Also, he will be getting his last feed at midnight and then nothing until after the surgery tomorrow afternoon. I'm curious to see how he does without any foods, my guess is that he feels much better. We have not put on his splints or hearing aids at all today so we can detect what it really bugging him. Plan for tomorrow is they will give him IV fluids to prevent dehydration starting at 6:00 am and he will recieve all of his regular medication. He will have hearing test in the booth again with his hearing aids turned up to amplify 100 decibels. So far we haven't noticed any response. The G-tube surgery will be at 3:30 with Dr. Jackson. The GI doc said he will look around during the surgery to see if he notices any visual stomach problems.

This picture from this morning was too good to leave out. And yes, Rob does change diapers.

I am curious as to the reason neither of the little man's care givers are paying attention to the region in need of attention??????

Poor little Coop. He just doesn't know why he is misearable but he is. My heart is with you all and keep working at finding the real issue. Sometimes it is just something simple and that is why it is missed.
I continue to pray for you all and that Cooper will be comfortable real soon. Have a Happy Easter. Kim
