Just a little update

If you are like me, you turned on your computer first thing this morning to see if there is any news about little Charlie. Well, not much is happening here but I'll post a little something.

He wasn't very happy last evening - nothing seemed to help from 5:30 p.m. -1:00 a.m. (except for an hour nap). He didn't like the swing, rocking by g-ma, repositioning, diaper changes, etc. About 12:30, nurse Amy suggested a bath. He tolerated it and did seem to like the warm water on his body. After drying, lotioning, wrapping in a warm blanket, a fresh diaper, and a few meds, he fell asleep and had a wonderful sleep until about 5:30 a.m. (anyway that was when I first heard him.) He slept through meds, vitals and putting on his booties at 4:00 a.m. He has been fussy for awhile this a.m. but is resting now.

Angel can tell you more about his schedule for today and plans for the next few days when she gets here. I hope she had a nice b-day yesterday. She spent time will Britt, Max and Ann while G-ma Kathi was here.

I love this precious little boy. Sometimes it is hard to watch him when he is aggitated and there's nothing a g-ma can do to comfort him. Thank goodness for meds and medical personnel who can offer some relief to to this wonderful little guy.

My prayers are for a good day = a few improvements, some good naps and encouraging news.
G-ma Cheryl

Cheryl, thanks for posting. I do, in fact, check first thing every day. I wondered why there was only one post yesterday. I'm glad it was because Angel got out and celebrated her BD.
(Though why one would celebrate getting older is beyond me.) You are a good and faithful granma.

You are right. I do check first thing every morning, and late morning and early afternoon, and late afternoon and early evening...I think you get the point! And I pray in between each post and each time I get to see him, praying for even the smallest improvement. I love you Charlie- and even though my ADD mind is going a billion miles a minute, you are always in my thoughts and prayers. I love you Jack Jack!

What a good grandma he has and family support. He is just beautiful. I'm so sorry that he us uncomfortable, and hope that he will find some relief tomorrow. I just hope and pray that Charlie will be well again. He is SO CUTE, I don't think I have seen a more sweet little face than his.
