The Day with Aunt Steffy

Rob demanded that I spend a bit of my time tickling the key of the keyboard. Charlie had a rough day today. He was upset that Jared left him and was not taking him along on the road trip. He put up a good fight, crying through his meds and a dose of Ativan around 11:00.

At noon they tried draining out his stomach. Out came a ton of air. As soon as that was out, Charlie was asleep. In fact, he was so relaxed that that he slept until after 5 when PT came in to stretch him out. Since then he has been upset once again. Poor little guy!!

As for exciting news, Cooper burped!! A real one. Just snuck up there and had to come up.

It has been a great day for me. Even with Charlie so upset at times, it has been a blessing for me to be here with him. I enjoy being an aunt for such a wonderful boy and his family.

You are so lucky to be there with Charlie. He must have a very special spirit around him! I'm sorry he had such a rough day! I hope he sleeps well tonight and that he can feel peaceful. I pray for angels to snuggle him and help him relax! Thank you for helping so that the family can have a little break and feel secure knowing that you are there for Charlie!

You are so lucky Stef. I bet it was great to spend the whole day with Charlie and to hear him burp- I am sure Rob is so proud. Just don't let Grandma Kathi know-you know how much she loves it when people burp around her! Love you guys.

As the queen of Burps, (ask anyone) I applaud Charlie on his accomplishment. My children, the prince and princess of Burps, also bow to the new knight of Burps. All hail Charlie!

Good job Charlie! Hope you had fun with Aunt Steffy and Jared and all who love you. I loved the pics of you especially the one with dad and you playing video games!! you were so tired When you grow up, you might want to play though. All dad has to do is help you find a special computer where you can play!
