Quick Update

Thank you for praying for a restful night and for Ethan's pain situation. I've decided (at least for now) that his irritability is not from teething. After trying baby orajel and all of the other suggestions, he was never calmed by them. However, he woke up at 3:00 this morning and was a completely different baby than he'd been the last day and a half. He drank nearly all of his bottle without one single tear and he had some different behavior signs that made me think that his issue is constipation and the not-so-healed mouth ulcer in the roof of his mouth. Both of which are side effects from the chemo and pain medication he was on at the hospital and both should clear up on their own in a day or so (hopefully). I am hoping that's the case and he will start to feel better very soon. But I'm so thankful that he was able to eat and rest and I was able to rest as well. I'm praying today is more of what we experienced in the early hours of this morning. God's mercies are new every morning and for us, they started at 3:00 am today! Thank you for praying for us.
