Yesterday at 8 am we turned off Calvin’s sedation.
The next 36 hours were torture.
After 7 days of being on heavy narcotics his little body had built up quite a tolerance.
Nate and I took shifts as Calvin went through the withdrawal symptoms.
He slowly woke up. It was fun seeing his eyes again.
Then his body started to shake and twitch.
He gagged and vomited.
He cried his silent cry.
All day. All night. And all day.
