Charlie is still with us and for that I am grateful.  There has been extensive damage to his brain and heart, but his heart is showing signs that it could recover.  Some would be concerned about brain damage, but I am not that girl.  If I get a chance to take him home, I will love him into oblivion.  Despite the doctor’s "questions" as to whether or not we should continue, the Hub and I politely say "screw you."
The prayers and support of each of you are what is keeping him alive. 
Much Love

In one summer I had a baby who was hospitalized for five weeks, quit my job, and moved back to my hometown. This blog is about starting over.

    Dear Lord,
    I ask you to keep Katy, her husband and baby Charlie in your loving embrace as they weather this storm.  You have known them all since before they were growing within thier mother\’s wombs.  You know all their needs, Lord.  I ask you, Lord, to place a hedge of protection around Charlie.  Heal him and his parents, Lord.  Help Katy to rest as she should while recovering from the major surgery she has had.  Suuround her and her husband with loving members of Your body, Lord. 
    My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    I am so glad to hear that he is doing a little better.  Please know that I am still praying for all of you and will continue to do so.  Don\’t let the doctor\’s push you around.  He is your child and you will know what is best.  Let your mother instincts tell those doc\’s how it is.
    With love and prayers,
