UPDATE (2/18/13)
It’s about 6:00pm, and I’m still down here with Beckett. I have to go home later this evening for class tomorrow in which I also have a paper due that I still need to finish, then a 10 page paper due on Thursday. My next few days will consist of classes and writing, which unfortunately involves trying to disengage mentally from everything going on ‘down here’ to better focus on priorities ‘up there’. I’m learning that this is getting more difficult than any easier. But I truly am thankful for Beckett’s progress, and do find some strength from that to persevere.
Deuteronomy 7:9 – Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands.
Literally just a few minutes ago, I helped the nurse take out Beckett’s PICC line. This is actually kind of a big deal. It basically means that the Doctors don’t think they necessarily need an IV source for Beckett anymore…even for ’emergencies’ (well, if it was a big enough emergency they would just have to put another one in). With how slow this stage has been with Beckett’s progress, we are quite thrilled for this news in particular (so please feel free to rejoice with us! ;-)).
We are hoping to set up a FaceTime call at all the Benefits for Beckett. So if you can make it out to one, please do. We are looking forward to showing him off! But one day (and hopefully someday soon), you’ll get to meet this little bundle-of-joy. Just ask those who have had that opportunity….you’re definitely missing out!! 😉
Thanks everyone…we love you all. We are so thankful with how many of you are still keeping up with Beckett’s story and even share it with others. I hope this has been as much of a blessing to you as it has to us!
