Cooperation

We have turned off the IV pain meds! This means she needs to take the oral pain meds. She is still restricted to clear liquids. They do not want her to eat food until she has a dirty diaper. The child has not eaten since Wednesday! The pain meds act against this process too Our nurse yesterday convinced the surgical team to let her have 1/2 oz. of chocolate milk with her meds in it to ensure she would be willing to take them. Remember our issue in the past when we forced medicine on her? She throws it right back up again.
Parents, nurses and doctors working together with this particular child's tendancies in mind. I never thought I would see this kind of personalized attention and cooperation. I am glad to be proven wrong.
We might move to a normal room today. Will see how the day progresses.
