Tough Stuff

Nolan has had a rough afternoon. At first, the fentanyl from surgery kept the pain at bay.


He was very upset. He can't have anything to eat or drink. Nothing. No ice chips, no water, no wet rag. Anything that hits his stomach could cause retching in a very sensitive tummy. For kids with fundoplications, it isn't unusual o go 48 hours without water.

His tummy looks pretty decent for the surgery he went through. He is in a considerable amount of pain. He got more IV morphine about a half hour ago, but he still can't sleep.

Poor baby. He looks so little in that big bed. Praying for you all,

Aw, poor sweet thing! I suspect he's a tough guy, just like my X, and he'll be feeling better soon. His tummy looks remarkably neat and tidy. I'm not sure what I was expecting! Thank goodness for Western medicine and drugs! Hang in there. And thanks for the updates. I've been thinking about you all day.
