Gideon was really hard to settle when he woke because of his pain and he seemed more uncomfortable when I picked him up than when lying down. The only thing I could do to calm him was to bend down close and brush my hair across his fingers until he grabbed hold of it himself. I'd chime in with the phrase "You found Mommy's hair" and for a moment he would calm. I sang to him while he held my hair and he would drift back to sleep. Sometimes it worked. Sometimes I had to call the nurse. The doctor came in this morning and suggested an increase in his pain medications.
This morning he woke up uncomfortable and sad. Right now he has settled - Thank you Jesus.
I need coffee.
