Stevie and Ben

I LOVE this picture of Stevie's hands with Ben's.
It was her request.
She loves to hold him,
but since he's covered with wires,
his hands will have to do for now.
I captured this a few minutes ago.
Such a sweet picture.
Stevie has been with us since Wednesday.
It's been such a treat to have her here.
Ben's exhausted from being off the vent all day.
You can see it in this picture.
He was supposed to be off the vent all night too.
His lungs said no.
They needed a rest.
His whole left side and right lower lobes are down.
Such a discouraging setback.
One more day...
that's what I keep telling myself.
One more day...

Heavenly Father sure knew what he was doing when he sent Ben to Stevie. Love you so.

slow steps forward, I know it feels like forever, but he'll get there. All day off the vent, maybe tomorrow all night to, we'll pray for that.

One day at a time. That's all you can do. Stevie is so cute. Ben looks pretty pooped out. Poor little guy. Love you guys!

Oh, Benji, we're so sorry that things are going so slowly for all of you. Let's hope that things get better soon. Lots of love to you. Love the picture of yours and Stevie's hands--such tenderness here.

It is a picture that does show how tired Ben is. Plan by the week, not the day, and maybe it will fly by!
