Much Needed Rest :-)

Charlie has been asleep since 0900. I am soooo happy. I think his sleep cycles are a little screwed up but this is great. My luck he'll wake up the minute I publish this post. I think he's still on schedule for his casts today but they have been really good about not disrupting his little rest so hopefully they'll still have time. Other than that nothing new I just hope his dreams are taking him to a better place for a little relaxation, he needs it.

i also meant to comment on what grandpa barlow (who's dang near deaf) said yesterday. i have watched him with britty, and how they communicate is awesome. i think brit and brian understand each other better than brian and anybody else. it is pretty special to watch. and i know grandpa bri and charlie will have the same bond.

Angel and Rob, this is Steph Miles - former EMGer to the Stars (ok, just to Dr. Foley and the gang.. hah). Anyway, Jennifer called me this morning and gave me the 411 and the link to Charlie's blog. I can't believe you are living through this nightmare! Your little family is so beautiful, I'm sorry that I didn't get to squeeze those boys before your world turned upside down. You will be in our constant thoughts and prayers and we'll definitely be keeping an eye on you guys via the blog. Keep up the good work Charlie.. you have the heart of a warrior and the love of legions. - steph

'Miracle Drug' - U2

I want a trip inside your head
Spend the day there...
To hear the things you haven't said
And see what you might see

I wanna hear you when you call
Do you feel anything at all?
I wanna see your thoughts take shape
And walk right out

Freedom has a scent
Like the top of a new born baby's head

The songs are in your eyes
I see them when you smile
I've seen enough I'm not giving up
On a miracle drug

Of science and the human heart
There is no limit
There is no failure here sweetheart
Just when you quit...

I am you and you are mine
Love makes no sense of space
And time...will disappear
Love and logic keep us clear
Reason is on our side, love...

The songs are in your eyes
I see them when you smile
I've had enough of romantic love
I'd give it up, yeah, I'd give it up
For a miracle, a miracle drug, a miracle drug

God I need your help tonight

Beneath the noise
Below the din
I hear your voice
It's whispering
In science and in medicine
"I was a stranger
You took me in"

The songs are in your eyes
I see them when you smile
I've had enough of romantic love
I'd give it up, yeah, I'd give it up
For a miracle, miracle drug

Miracle, miracle drug

**Love & Prayers - Charlie's miracle drugs**

I also loved the post from Grandpa Barlow. It is amazing what Grandparents will do for their grandkids. Our neighbor gave Anni the sign language ABC's today and she is excited to get started. She talks a million miles a minute....I wonder if her hands can keep up with her mouth?!?
