Yesterday morning, Owen started complaining of pain again. The homecare nurse came out for a visit and couldn't figure out why he would be asking for meds so much since the patch was supposed to help take care of that and decrease his need for morphine. While she was here and I was sitting on the couch with Owen on my lap, I noticed a small sticker which looked mysteriously exactly like the med patch I had put on his arm....Yup-sure enough, while on the floor the previous day, that little stinker had taken the patch off and stuck it on the coffee table!! We put a new patch on him (on his far less reachable back!) and will be playing catch up with the meds until this new one kicks in!
He is sleeping now. Hopefully the meds will start to regulate, keeping his pain at bay, but still allowing him to stay awake!
Have a great day!

Dear Jen and Owen,
I came across this website by chance, what a blessing. It was good to see the pictures and hear how all of you are doing. I miss you all very much, and I think about you every day. Your courage is nothing short of heroic. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you or your family. I love the caption under your main picture, you're right the best thing in the world is a hug from Owen. Please give him a great big one from me. I love you guys. Please call me if you have time.
Love, Ms. Jackie
