A Nourishing Weekend

image

After a few exhausting weeks of preparing home for Charlie, a line infection, antibiotics, continual delays in home going, a broken line that would require surgery to replace if not successfully repaired, positive after positive after positive blood cultures…this mama was exhausted.  Charlie’s precious grandma’s took over the Charlie ship for the weekend so that  our family could spontaneously escape to the mountains.  We planned to go for 1 night but extended it to 2 when we discovered Charlie wouldn’t be able to come home Monday.  It was such a sweet time of biking, swimming, singing, worshiping our King, resting, wading in the river, enjoying God’s majestic mountains, and just being together.  Thank you grandma’s!!!  We all missed Charlie deeply, but were thankful that he was being loved on immensely and in good hands.  We enjoyed watching a little girl with DS in the swimming pool and seeing a baby with a trach and pumps on top of the mountain!  Just a nice little encouragement.

We had our first negative 48 hour blood culture just an hour ago.  This is a huge praise!   If the next set of results we get tomorrow evening are also negative we will be heading home Wednesday with our baby boy!

PLEASE PRAY:  NEGATIVE BLOOD CULTURES; PROTECTION FOR CHARLIE FROM THE NECESSARY INTERVENTIONS; PERSEVERANCE FOR OUR FAMILY; WEDNESDAY DEPARTURE; SMOOTH TRANSITION; HEALING FOR SMALL INTESTINE.
