This week seems to have flown by. The little patient is doing OK...OK I say, not great. He has been having trouble sleeping due to pain and itching. The other night is was 4 a.m. before the two of us got to sleep. I was at a loss and called the paediatrician today after a second night with little sleep. He informed me that this is not unusual and the pain needs to be well managed. So even though the swelling and temperatures are gone, medication needs to be given at regular 4 to 6 hourly intervals and the night time dose needs to be doubled. Well, its now about an hour since he went to sleep and he has not come out of bed, crying to complain about pain so hopefully the night time dose is doing the trick and we will all have a better night tonight.
He had a wonderful surprise this week when the pharmacy delivery man delivered a special package just for him! It was a beautiful, warm, soft and cuddly blanket! He and his blanket have not spent much time apart this week! It was given to him by a sweet, kind lady who works in the pharmacy office. What a kind thing to do for a little boy! He just loves his blanket!
