“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.  He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.”  Psalm 23: 1-3

Last night I had some very sweet time at home with my family.  Oh what a blessing!  I LOVE my family so much.  It felt good to sleep in my own bed, snuggle my little’s, talk with my older’s, and just recharge.  I even got to go to one of David’s races – what a joy.


When we got back to the hospital we received good news.  Charlie’s leaking has slowed down a lot and it appears that things might be beginning to move through the bowels the right way…maybe.  We have small indicators that things might be shifting in the right direction!  This would be so great as we were on the brink of needing something to change quickly to avoid eminent intervention of some kind.  The wound site was getting too sick to wait as long as they wanted too.  Please continue to pray that the intestines would heal quickly and begin to function properly.  Charlie enjoyed the day in grandma’s arms and sleeping.


Have I told you how cute he is?  He is SO cute and happy even in the midst of great pain and difficulty.  Savannah is my hospital buddy tonight.  She was thrilled to get to hold him and change his diaper
