Walking And Waiting


Carter went on his very first walk yesterday. Michael helped plant a garden in my parent's yard, so we had to go up and water the plants. It's only a few blocks away, so we decided to take advantage of the nice weather and go for a walk. Contrary to what this picture shows, he loved feeling the breeze between those little toes. We get to do this every day during the Summer.
I'm just trying to tie up loose ends today. It's tough when you have no idea how long you're going to be away. I can't spend the night with him while he's in the ICU, but plan to once he transfers to the floor. I'm still waiting for the call to tell us what time to be up there. I'm guessing that it will be early in the morning since one of the doctors has to perform his surgery before his clinic appointments. I'll keep you posted. Since we're going to have a long wait, and the hospital has WIFI, I'll be updating on here and Facebook throughout the day. Any prayers and good thoughts are appreciated.

You sure can stay with him in the ICU. If you are lucky, they will give you just a sleeping room with a twin bed in it that you can go lay down on, or you can just stay in the rocker all night. I could not stand leaving Carter in the ICU so I stayed in the rocker, and Tim slept in the little room. Good luck tomorrow, and we will be praying for your Carter!
