Day 5, Sunday, a day of rest (thankfully).
After the last two rollercoaster days, we were ready for a peaceful day. Looking on the map for nearby churches that I was familiar with we decided on Faith Baptist in Canoga Park. We started the morning by bringing Carson a milk supply and he was upset that we overlooked the opportunity to bring donuts along too.
The morning service at Faith Baptist was very good, what a perfect time for Romans 8:28. We met and chatted with several very nice families and Carson now has even more prayers behind him. We also heard reports of two people being saved in our home church, what a wonderful day!
During our afternoon session with Carson he got to say his goodbye's to Granny Foster. We were then treated to a good long stint of him being awake and active. Such a terrific follow up to yesterday's eyes open activity. It really is starting to feel like he's progressing toward being able to head home. In fact, this evening in the baby shuffle, he was sent to a room with infants that weren't as critical. Praise the Lord for His wonderful hand upon our boy!
One thing Carson has against going home - having to see Daddy's full maskless face for the first time. If he can't hold his lunch I'll just say "babies always do that."
What an amazing 5 days it has been! Mom and I have been so blessed by Carson's arrival that we can't wait to see what happens from here. We are also so blessed by all of you. The support from back home and the news of friends and people from all over the place following along and praying is overwhelming. Our hearts are warmed and we are so thankful to all of you.
Tomorrow is a big day as it's the first detailed follow-up measurement for hydrocephalus. Things have been good so far, but the more detailed look can possibly bring the news that he's borderline or even crossed the threshold to need a shunt. Again, we can't say thank you enough for all your prayers, love, and support.
I know, I know - quit blathering and post another cute baby pic. Here you go!
