Daddy's Little Wingman

Dee was working last night and convinced Daddy to take another try at holding Charlie. Although, it didn't take too much convincing since it was Dee who was offering and our faith in her is pretty high! It went very well and Charlie loved just staring up at his Daddy. Thanks Jen and Mike for the onesie! It worked out great for Daddy and Charlie's big moment!

Charlie is still running a fever. Dr. Marr ordered another blood work up last night and it still came back negative. The growth tests from the day before are still negative. There does not seem to be a clear answer as to what it could be. The only questionable element is the picc line and the doctors do not seem to think it could be that because it was put in after cultures came back negative. They consulted with Dr Ratner (the surgeon) and he agreed that leaving it in was sensible. So, no progress on that front. He was not as irritable yesterday though and actually stayed awake for hours, refusing to go to sleep for more than a couple minutes at a time - from about 4 pm to 11pm when we left. He just likes to look around and take everything in. He is afraid of missing out on anything!
