Elijah is having a rough evening. His heart rate is high (145 while sleeping) and that usually indicates that something is brewing. His temp is up just slightly. His heart rate could be up because he is feeling pain from his sinus procedure, line placement, or bone marrow biopsy. I know he is uncomfortable..his mouth and nose are bothering him...he still has some bleeding through his nostrils. He asks me over and over to clean out his mouth with a swab..He doesn't seem in pain and I have given him tylenol with codeine...but he may just not been able to tell us.
I am praying that there is no infection or illness. I am praying for a restful night's sleep for him. He wants to be back home...we visited today and it was hard to watch his face as we drove off. Each morning when he wakes up, he asks if we are going home. I tell him..."soon" but truth is, I don't know when that will be.
