Because moving Owen has been causing him so much pain, the doctor increased the amount of medication he receives in the bolus push of morphine. Prior to moving him to change his pull up and fluff up his pillow, etc this morning, I gave him the push of medication, and when I picked him up to move him he didn't flinch. I took that opportunity to keep him in my arms and hold him for over an hour today. He feels so wonderful-just perfect in my arms. I can't even describe how amazing that was. I have the knowledge in the back of my mind each and every time that I hold him that it could be the last time I do so, so every time is so, so special.
