Charlie and I enjoyed some good snuggles tonight. Sarah and I had fun marveling at his darling rolls and beautiful hair. After singing to him we did all of his “cares” and tucked him in for the night. He is sleeping soundly and peacefully now.
We will sleep fast as tomorrow morning at 7:15 we have a “care conference” with Charlie’s team. Charlie has been uniquely designed to be fairly complicated which makes his team a little bit more like an army. I am praying that this healthcare army is filled with hope, optimism, creativity, and good ideas to get Charlie back home with his family as we meet to discuss Charlie’s future plans. We will be discussing his challenged respiratory state and the plans to help his heal.
There are many unknowns- to man at least. Though God knows the plans He has for Charlie! I keep imagining God parting the waters for Charlie as he did for the Israelites as they fled Egypt. I trust that God will make our next steps very clear. May the meeting tomorrow be directed by the Father’s merciful and mighty hand…
Exodus 14: 13-16 And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. 14 The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.”
15 And the Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to GO FORWARD!!! 16 But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. And the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea. “
