You Know Us, Always With the Favors

The NICU brings so many bittersweet relationships. Love the nurses for taking care of our child, hate that they are the ones putting your angel to bed at night. Love the machines for keeping your child alive, hate that your child needs them.

Love the people you meet in the NICU, hate that you had to meet in such a nasty, ugly way.

Tonight, we need some prayers for a family-- a wonderful, beautiful, new family. Their son, Bobby, is a little over 1 month old. He was born at 26 weeks, and weighed just a little bit more than Charlotte at birth. He's been a real fighter-- but this weekend, he's facing one of those infamous "NICU Roller Coaster Set Backs."

Bobby's mom celebrated her birthday yesterday as her son went back on the ventilator. Charlotte did that to me on Mother's Day, and let me tell you, there's no other way to put it, it just sucks. Plain, ol', sucks.

So tonight, tomorrow, the day after, and all the days after that, say a prayer, think a positive thought, whisper their name to the universe. Mom, Dad, and Bobby can all use a bit of a lift this week.

Thank you so much for being the angels that lift us all.


  1. We will say a prayer for you and Bobby... the NICU just plain old stinks!

  2. Thanks co much for posting the prayer request for Bobby and his parents! His mom is one of my best friends and we started reading your blog after she shared a prayer request for Charlotte. It's been nice to have so many people praying for Bobby and I'm so glad to have your blog to read and get an idea of what they are going through. We'll be keeping Charlotte in our prayers as well!

  3. With a name like Bobby, you know he'll be in our prayers. :)
