Evening update

I've gotten Matthew tucked in for the night. He is resting, finally. This afternoon he has been very uncomfortable. We have turned up his morphine twice. Every time he coughs though, he cries out in pain. And then he won't cough hard enough to get what he is coughing out. And so then he gags. It's a vicious cycle. Our night nurse (LOVE HER) says tonight and tomorrow will be the worst. She keeps telling me it will be worth the pain he is going through right now. I hope so. This momma heart is hurting tonight.

Say prayers for our sweet little buddy. We're ready for our Matthew to be back to his old non-vomiting, smiling self.
