Week three has been a tough one. Carter picked up an infection coming out of his first Holiday weekend. I believe the celebration from the Tennessee victory was just too much for him. Tuesday everyone noticed a change in him. High temps, inactivity, and a loss of appetite let us know something was not right. Labs were drawn and all indications pointed to an infection. His levels peaked at 11 and have since made it back down to 5.4 as of Sunday morning(9/12). Note: the higher the level the more severe the infection.
This week has been the toughest by far. Bedrest was nothing compared to the nonstop pace we keep now. Very little time passes that Meagan and I are not at the hospital. I suppose we have a routine, but a very unorthodox routine. We know Carter is in the best possible place at this time, but we are so ready to have him at home. God's perfect plan in His perfect time! We are blessed to be apart of the plan for this little boy, Carter.
God continues to bless us everyday. We have seen the works of prayer and have been praying for other families and their babies everynight. I ask everyone to remember these families and us as you pray tonight. Ask for peace, healing, and strength for our families.
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28
