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."
