Day +3 (Sleeping Beauty)

I may have spoken too soon regarding Hunter's sleep habits. He slept soundly from 10:00 last night until 10:30 this morning. It was blissful for me since I was on night patrol. I think a big reason he was able to finally sleep so well is his itching has almost completely subsided. The doctors decreased his new IV pain medication, for now, and increased his Benadryl. He had another great bath after riding around the unit in one of the toddler cars, which ended up parked in the tub room. He also spent some time on one of the family room video game consoles playing a Lightning McQueen game. Hunter was so invested in the video game the nurse had to bring his IV pole to reconnect him to his medications. Thankfully, he took another long nap today from 3:15 to 6:00. Currently, he's watching Elmo in Grouchland on repeat mode. He discovered Finding Nemo yesterday so that could potentially make it into his rotation along with Cars and Thomas.
Hunter seems pain and itch free so we are very pleased. However, we noticed his hair is beginning to fall out. We may break out the clippers soon!


  1. Heureuse de voir qu'Hunter reprend du poil de la bête ! Ses cousins sont incollables en ce qui concerne Thomas le train, ils auront des choses à se dire bientôt...
    Quant aux cheveux qui tombent, nous avons une magnifique perruque rose du plus bel effet. Je vous enverrai une photo de Numa avec, c'est très seyant vous verrez !

    Bises de nous tous,
    Sylvie et les garçons
