This is the worst day I have had with Aaron his entire life! Since the second he woke up he was screaming, thrashing, and hitting me. I had to be right by his side to prevent him from hurting himself. He managed to jerk his head back into my chest and nose. He scratched up my arms and kicked me in the legs. He hit the back of his head several times against the bed rails and his face thrashed down on the rail once. By 2:00, I broke down in tears and asked Michael to come back from work to help me. Of course, he didn't hesitate and is on his way.
I think this is being caused by a combination of his steroids and pain medication. Steroids cause "Roid Rage" and most kids get this. However, Aaron seems to get worse when they give him pain medication. We have tried 3 different kinds so far. They finally turned off the pain pump for a few minutes and Aaron fell asleep. Right now he is sleeping and I am taking a minute to dry my tears and regain strength.
