Unfortunately, there is nothing they feel comfortable doing surgically though. They don't want to risk causing more bleeding, or risk him developing an infection, if they put in drain tubes or open him up to clean out the blood. I understand, I really do, but that doesn't mean it's easy to hear "this is just going to take time." I'm not mad at any of the doctors. They are doing what is best, and safest for Rowan. It just made me feel a little helpless though.
His little tummy is so distended. First from the hematomas, and second from the excess fluid he has on him right now. His abdomen looks like it's going to pop. It is heartbreaking to watch him move around in the bed when he looks like this.
"They just don't want to put me through any risky surgeries to fix it right now."
Dear sweet Rowan.
I don't know what I'd do if you weren't the way you are.
Your positive attitude and selflessness are beyond words.
from the bottom of my heart.
There are many, as you so kindly reminded me.
