18 Days Old- New Plan


Psalm 139: 13-14 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.  I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

Oh Charlie, you are so precious.  You are such a beautiful boy.  I love who you are.  You are my baby.  You are so dear to me.  You look like us- a Fine.  You smell like what I imagine heaven to smell like.  God’s Word tells me you are wonderful and marvelous, a gift, a reward, and a blessing..Amen!  As much as I long for your pain and suffering to end, as much as I long to pick you up and hold you, as much as I long to take you home to your family, as much as I long for this trial to end, I long even more for you to know the presence of God in your life- today and always little Charles.  My mother’s arms ache for you, but my love for you doesn’t hold a candle to the love that God has for you.  Lord, would you hold this little baby boy whom you have created so fearfully and wonderfully, make hIm to feel your presence, your love, your peace.  May your presence be more comforting and more soothing and more healing than anything I could offer!  Lord you are Charlie’s Maker, Great Physician, and Loving Father.

Today was very teary for me.  I woke up teary and the tears flowed all morning.  There was so much news about Charlie this morning, little ups and downs- just so much to process and understand.  My sweet nurse put her arm around me and reminded me how far we have come, how much great progress we have made.  Oh how right she was.  I am thankful that God has preserved Charlie and is bringing about healing.

Charlie’s overall trend is very good.  The new plan as of today is to do his stomach study  and the surgery to repair the highly suspected blockage in his small intestine would be A week or so from this Friday if the study confirms it’s presence.  This plan is very encouraging to me as it will allow for many good things to start happening much sooner than I originally expected.
