Helpless to help = Me



I'm not sure there's anything worse than a sick baby for whom you can do nothing but hug, and love on, and pray they feel better soon.  And for Quint, there is nothing I can do but give him his prescription, and hope this flu passes quickly.

Friends, I have to leave town tomorrow - and I am putting Quint into the very capable hands of his Daddy and his grandparents for the next seven days.  But he is sick.  Quite sick.  He was supposed to come along, and after a visit with his doctor today - we've all agreed it's not going to happen.

Would you mind sending a prayer up for his quick recovery and health?  All things happen for a reason and I'm confident he will be just fine.  But it's hard for me to leave my under-the-weather little guy...so hard.

Sorry to hear that we won't see Quint in Cali, but understand. Flying is very difficult for anyone that is sick, especially the little ones.
I'll be praying. I know you're leaving him in very capable hands, not only those who love him, but His hands too.
See YOU soon!

It's a hard decision to make. Any choice you make hurts someone or feels not quite right.

He is with his wonderful father and thank goodness you have family who will drop everything and come to help you.

I hope you feel better yourself and we'll look forward to your return.

Love V

Oh!!! That's awful. Just before you leave!!! Poor baby. I hope he is well soon... I pray he doesn't have the flu I'm thinking of... can't bear to say it out loud. Most of the people I know have come down with it. Hang in there.... I'm glad he has such a wonderful Daddy to take care of him!!
