Owen is much more comfortable (i.e. asleep) today now that he is on the medication pump. It gives him morphine continuously over the 24 hour period. He was quite uncomfortable yesterday, so it is so much better to see him like this.
While he has been semi-awake the past few days he will call out "Boo!" to scare us, and making animal sounds. He has also been counting and saying the alphabet! It's been quite cute.
Another thing he does while sleeping is snore like an old man!
Trying our best to keep him as comfortable as possible. That's the most important thing to me right now-that he is comfortable and not in any pain at all...
He got a postcard from the teacher who would have been his preschool teacher this fall. It's heartbreaking to me that he won't be able to go. He would have had so much fun and made so many friends...

Jen - your story has touched me more than I can say. I have a little girl born in Jan. 2004 Just like Owen. I am so blessed that she is healthy. I wish you enough! I can't imagine what this journey is like for you and Owen. Your strength is a true inspiration. Jenn

Thanks Lori and Jenn,
Our world has certainly been turned upside down this past year and a half! I am far from inspirational, I am simply doing what any other parent would do...Owen, however, is an inspiration to us all!
