Snuggle Power

The girls finally got to come in and see J today for the first time in 17 days. This is huge and was quite emotional. Z was okay at first but did have a bit of adjustment and then when leaving had some difficulty. Amberly was great, however she does process things differently so it will be interesting to see where her brain goes in the coming days. J and I both got emotional when it started but wow how important these little people have become to our lives and happiness. J had a few doctors in and it was time for them to eventually bring her lunch so we decided to get food from the cafeteria to eat with her. Then PT came and she went for her excersises, Zoey got sad, climbed up in my lap and went to sleep, I tried to get Amberly to sleep as well but that wasn’t going to happen so her and grammy went for a walk. When J got back Z climbed up in the bed with her and snuggled.

There is a statue of limitations on every child’s good humor and that limit had been reached when J went down to pt, so we were already over the limit. I went down and got Amberly’s homework, and my Oreo’s and kissed them and then came back up to the room with J. I told Zoey when she asked if I was coming home with them that she had sissy and Christie and grammy and that if I went with them who would stay with mommy, it was okay then that I stay with her.

When I got back to the room I began to think about this verse.

Luke 18:15
People brought babies to Jesus, hoping he might touch them. When the disciples saw it, they shooed them off.

Luke 18:16
Jesus called them back. “Let these children alone. Don’t get between them and me. These children are the kingdom’s pride and joy.

I love verses where Jesus talks specifically about kids, and i know that this may not seem right because God is love and God is omniscient and omnipresent and all those things, but God created human beings for a reason. To have relationship with them, and while I know that God doesn’t NEED anything but he desires it he desired relationship. I like to think that one of the reasons that Jesus wanted the little children was because there is absolutely nothing like having my daughters in my lap hugging me and taking a nap, nothing like the snuggles of a child. It makes everything better. Jesus was God yes but Jesus was also human and humans crave contact and attention. I like the thought of Jesus giving his blessings to the children and of the children blessing Jesus with the smiles that only a kid can give, or the hugs, or the snuggles or the funny words or the eskimo kisses. The love and trust of a child in their parent is amazing and I am sure that the love and trust that children gave to Jesus did him just as much good as the blessings that he gave them.

Update time.

J is doing much better.

  1. eating
  2. all lines are out except the iv line for the antibiotics they are giving her
  3. kidney’s are doing what they are supposed to and if that continues the numbers are going to be great
  4. walking around
  5. still have the antibiotics for at least one more night
  6. Possible discharge tomorrow or friday to a rehab facility.
  7. Aaron is very happy if a little bit tired.

On a side note the hospital Chef came in, yes hospitals have chef’s who knew, asked J what she wanted she said she wanted and he went down and made it for her specifically, that was so clue.
