Oh and he managed to shoot me with a fountain of urine from his penis which was just wonderful - I was so thrilled when it happened! It seems that quite a bit or urine comes out of the normal route as well as his vesicostomy now, so that's great too.
So we've had a lovely week just hanging out and Sam has been settled after the initial blip on Tuesday with his kidney not draining. I've had a mix of some visitors and time to read, ponder and pray, watch t.v. - it's been quite relaxing. We are so thankful for the skills and care of the team here at Starship and how their skills and God's hand have sustained Samuel and worked in his life and ours - I take little Samuel's hands in mine and pray with him at the start and end of each day.... they are special times where Samuel will settle and stare and smile. It is lovely to see his wee face cooing as I thank God for this little life.... and I'm sure Samuel knows Gods presence in a tangible way.
Francis and the girls have had a really busy time - lots of people to see, jetlag, heat and emotions to contend with - so I definitely got the easy bit by staying back here with Sam. They have a busy week ahead so I'm conscious of praying for strength especially for Francis as he has many practical things to do, and also the girls emotions to be aware of.
I'm off to watch a dvd and eat popcorn with Aunty Toria - a nice way to pass a wet and windy Saturday afternoon in hospital.
Best wishes and ongoing thanks for your love and prayers. Shirley
