So, here we are. My parents and Aunt Sandi went down to the cafeteria to get some lunch. I am sitting next to Stephen as he drifts in and out of sleep. He is still in pain and is connected to the PCA pump which he can press whenever he feels he needs pain medication. Some good news is that he can now eat solid foods if he wants to and he took a walk with my Dad down the hallway earlier. Walking was a big improvement, so thats good.
The doctors should be coming on rounds at about 3, so we will have more information hopefully around then.
I feel really bad for Stephen, I almost feel like he is in pain for nothing. It is so hard to see him be in pain. I am doing my best to help him with whatever he needs and just be there for him.
I also feel helpless because 1. he is in so much pain and 2. what do we do now? So many family members and even a few friends have gotten tested to be my donor and no one is a match. All we can do now is wait for another gracious, amazing individual to want to get tested.
As always, thank you for keeping my brother and our family in your prayers.
