Has it only been 36 hours since Jake’s operation? Yesterday went quickly but today has been slow. He’d been doing well so they turned off his background morphine this morning, leaving him with the option of having a bolus when needed. He had a really rough time and had to have quite a few doses, so they've turned it back on at a lower dose and he's more comfortable now, though he is also more aware that things aren't right and is visibly frightened. Even though he’s doing so much better this time around, it’s heartbreaking seeing him like this.
