Surgery is set for Monday Afternoon

So Charlie (and his parents) had a good day. We learned today the doctors are satisfied with how stable Charlie has been that they are going to try the surgery tomorrow afternoon. Such a great surprise as we had prepared for weeks of fighting before they would fix his hernia. The kind nurses let us change a few diapers (just another chore for most parents but when you can't do anything for your son it made us feel like we were helping.) 

I have posted our first family picture along with the three generations of Vincent's (there are actually four but my grandfather has since passed on.) We are biased but we think he is just the most precious thing.

He has done so great so far. The doctors are just so pleased with how well he has done so far. They warned us that after the surgery is like starting all over again to keep him stable but at least for now it looks like we are almost through step one. We are 100% positive this is a direct result of the all the prayers that are lifting Charlie up closer to God. We cannot thank you all enough for your support and help over this very stressful time.  We can truly feel your love. We will let you know how he does.

I've been praying all night for little Charlie's strength and for the hands of the surgeon. Thanks for the great photo's, he is the most precious gift you have received from God. We all know that God is holding you all in his arms today. God bless and I will be praying for all of you today!!, Love, Dee
