The Sabbath :(

This afternoon was great for Rob and Angel. We got to see Britty for the first time in a week. It was awesome and I think that we both missed him way more than we thought we would. But for Charlie it hasn't been such a hot day. He continues to struggle w/ a heart rate that is way too high, 190's and you'd think that after 4 or 5 hours he'd exhaust himself and fall asleep but nope. We figure he's slept about 3 hours in the last 24 and the meds aren't calming him down like they used to. The Doc's are going to take the beta-blocker route to try and lower his heart rate so we're hopeful that they will help. Right now he's pretty worked up and sweating like a pig. (Actually the hog Doc informed me that if a pig sweats it will die, what M.D. knows that kind of stuff?) He's running some pretty good temps today also and I can't imagine that this is good for a nogg'in that has already been cooked. We're praying for cooler temps and sleep for our poor boy. I told Charlie that we need some good news for the blog and he stared off into the distance which I interpreted as "I'll see what I can do old man."

Hang in there everyone, I have faith that things will settle down here one of these days soon. If only we could know what is going on in little Charlie's mind about all this nonsense. I'll keep up my prayers for you all. Glad you got to see Britt, I'm sure he was so happy to get to see his mommy and daddy again too!

Sounds like quite a day for everyone. I hope that you both have been getting some rest throughout this process but I understand how difficult or selfish that may seem at times. I will say many prayers and light a candle for you all. Thoughts are with you.
