Wow that was a long night. I wish I had better news to report, but last night was another rough night. Ethan is having phantom pains in his legs from having the spinal surgery. The night are the worst. I wonder in dreaming fires of random signals through the spine. He woke up several times in the night grabing his leg and screaming in terror. The pain meds are knocking off the edge, but movement is nearly impossible without excuciating pain.

We will be in the hospital at least one more night until we get the pain under control and he has full range of motion again. I am a bit punchy today, but otherwise no worse for wear. Hospital stays are a series of peaks and valleys that eventually tauper off. This too shall pass.

Sorry for the downer entry.

Thanks for the prayers.

  1. Still praying for you guys Ben. I am sure it is emotionally exhausting. You will be taking some time off from work to recover, aren’t you?

  2. I hope things are better for Ethan. Phantom pain my eye!!! Whoever said it was needs to walk a mile in a spinal cord patients shoes. Can he take anything? I take nuerontin (gabapentin generic). We’re all still praying for you all! Lots of hugs and kisses!! With much love!
