“It was worth it.”   2 comments

GeorgePaul was at a 7 for constant pain on Sunday. He had one epic, and 1-2 rises per hour. Distraction is one of the primary tools in any pain management advice, and this kind of day is one in which he can focus and distract himself. The minute he tries to stop the focus, however, the pain is in front of him and he has a hard time.

Saturday included some great moments; we went to a movie! It was a spontaneous decision and we try to be ready for the chance to do something that is not doctor related outside the house. When we had been there about 15 minutes, his pain level went to zero for an hour and a half! I could see the pain start back up about 35 minutes before the end of the movie, and he was squirming in his chair about ten minutes from the end, but did not want to leave. We made it back out to the car and came straight home, and his comment was, “It was worth it, just to be out doing something normal like my friends.”

Last night, Sunday night, GP screamed 4 or 5 times during the night. This has not happened for a while. The noises woke the rest of us up each time, and although we kept checking on him, he never fully woke up. We are glad that he stayed asleep, but we’ll be watching him closely today.

  1. Beardsleys – I wake up everyday and rush to this website to see what you’ve posted hoping that it will be a good night for GP. I am always amazed Laurin, that with everything else that you have going on, you can still post & let us all know what is going on. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart for keeping this mom in the know. You are in my prayers every day, but now your family has worked your way into my heart. I love you guys & know God’s plan is huge, we just don’t see it, yet!

  2. Woo-hoo! Praise God! I am so glad you got to go out and do something ‘normal’ GP! Hugs to you my little friend!
