I don’t feel much like writing today, so Joey’s stepping in for me. This won’t be the last time. 🙂
Finn is progressively doing better.
(1) We still cath(eterize) every 24hrs. Just so you know how awesome he is…it is his routine to peacefully drift off to sleep while we roll him onto his side and begin poking and prodding. I see him saying, “Go on, do your worst, world. I’ll be sleeping.”
(2) His IV’s come out tonight–meaning the doctors have seen him eat well enough on momma’s milk that the supplemental electrolytes and lipids are no longer needed. I see him saying, “Momma din’t raze no foo. I want the good stuff.”
(3) Continuing with the theme of Finn’s anatomical updates, his digestive track seems to be working excellent. Finn HATES dirty diapers. We believe this is especially true because he’s lying prone, so everything slides down, so to speak. Adult content warning: In our nurse’s most clinical terms, “Testicles should not have poop on them.” He had the type of blowout that you hear parents talk about, but you have to see to believe. I’m so proud of him. I think you know its love when poop and pee bring literal tears to your eyes (my nose is stinging right now..and not from stench).
Continue praying for Finn.
I have never, in all my life, seen prayer work in community like I have through you and through our situation. Thank you for allowing God to be visible through your acts of love. What has formed around Finn is a foreshadowing of the Kingdom in which we will all eat (and never go hungry), run (and never grow weary), and love (and never be abandoned).
