This Morning

A click, a quiet rolling sound from the IV pump. The sharp chemical smell from the co flex wrap. A bump, squeak and rattle as a cart moves down the hall. I can see the snow covered peaks outside the window. Warm, as my body brackets my son in the bed. Mostly I am grateful for the lack of a certain sound. The kid in the next room, I kid you not, screamed bloody blue murder all night long. I think s/he finally fell asleep around 5 this morning. I have no idea how it is humanly possible to scream for 10 hours but fear not, now you know, it is possible. We are in a holding pattern here at Sick Kids R Us. They might be able to get him into surgery early, so, for now we wait.
Edited to add:
And wait. The nurse came by to say it didn't work out. So we are back on for 3:30.
I got my shower so who cares?

I hope it didn't keep the boy up.
You should have yelled. SHUT THAT KID UP.
I'm certain the nurses would have RUN right over to help :) ha ha
Good luck today.
