The past few days have been about the same. Carter is still struggling and going back and forth. They are still trying to feed Carter through his J tube and he is still struggling to tolerate it. He seems to be feeling better during the day, but he is still extremely restless and irritable at night. We have tried many drugs for bladder spasms and nothing seems to make a difference. The main problem is that all of the drugs have to be IV form since Carter does not always tolerate things that are given orally. He is still staying up until 2 or 3 am every night. It's not that he doesn't want to go to sleep, but it's that he can't get comfortable enough to go to sleep. The only time he does not cry is when I tightly hold him and rock him in the rocking chair. We have spent many hours in the rocking chair the past few nights. He usually will take a 2 hour nap during the day and besides that he is awake and very happy. I am completly confused on what is going on at night and I think our Doctor's are too. I know it has to get better and I am praying it will soon.
Carter got to go outside in his wagon again yesterday. He loved every minute of it. He acts like a different child outside! It was good for all three of us and lifted all of our spirits. We know God is in control and Carter will get better. We have not lost hope and can not wait to see what God has in store for our little gift. Carter still has a long way to go and he still needs your prayers. Please continue to pray for him. Pray for healing, strength and for his intestines to wake up. Brandon will be traveling back to Mississippi on Saturday and my Mom will be staying with us again for the next few weeks. Please pray for safe travels and an easy transition for Carter. Thank you so much for your faithful prayers for our entire family.
