They said what? I'm confused.
Day 10 for Carson was blessed frustration. Frustration because, you guessed it, his release was pushed all the way until Monday at the earliest. The plan is now to release us using a car-bed (rather than a car seat) with some special gel packs to protect his back for the drive home Monday. With the driving schematics laid out, why not release us now? We don't know, but God does and we will look to Him for wisdom and trust in His hand as it continues to guide this journey.
The blessed part? One of the reasons for the frustration is that Carson is proving himself every day to be a very healthy and active baby. We are so filled with joy to see this amazing addition to our lives and to see him so vibrant after all that he has been through is a huge blessing. We count ourselves very fortunate to be wondering why clearing him is such a difficulty rather than facing many other fearful complications that could have arisen.
We were also blessed today to get to spend an evening with Rob and Lisa. Their wedding anniversary falls on the same day that I proposed to Mom. We enjoyed a pleasant evening showing off Carson's pics again as well as reminiscing about Mom and I and our relationship's beginning. We are very thankful for them and blessed to call them close friends.
Thank you all for your love and prayers. We are blessed to have each and every one of you as a part of our lives. We love you all (at home and abroad) and are so eager to see you all again soon!
And goodnight to you as well little Carson, we are also eager to be able to keep you by our side rather than leave you behind each night.
