Cohen Alan Day 3 – Blue Lights Shining On Me …

By now you know I am a day behind in posting video and photos of the new grandson.

Yesterday they added some mood lighting to Cohen’s “box bed.” That’s right he is sleeping in shades of blue. We know it is not uncommon for premies and especially boys to need a little light to help them along.

As of now, he is doing well. They inserted a PICC line this morning and did an ultrasound and took x-rays. We are awaiting those results. Kimberly said he looks good today and nurse Jenny said he had a good night. These fights are won by rounds. So far, Cohen is winning all the rounds. Praying this continues until he reaches the “win” of coming home. You may see more photos by clicking on the “Read More” tag. They are, “Cohen In Blue,” “Daddy Dreaming,” and Great Touching Great.” Enjoy.

    Nice photos….I love the title Great touching Great….very nice. Very meaningful. Very touching. None of you are away from my thoughts and my prayers are constant. Trusting my gut is one thing, but what I trust now is more than my gut. Aside from healing, I have not been sure of anything more than this. Cohen will win the battle to go home with his family. This boy has already been an answered prayer for more than any of you know. I hope to find the words to share soon.

    1. April,
      It was cool catching my Dad touching Cohen.

    Todd, I will never forget how you were there the day they took my 24 hour old son, Brian to surgery for a 5 hour surgery and how you and Patty were so good to help take care of my 2 older children during his 6 week stay in the hospital. Please know that I will be praying for Cohen and your entire family as you go through this time with him. I cannot wait to see all the pictures as he progresses and finally comes home. What a blessed little boy to have such wonderful parents and grandparents.

    1. Nelda,
      We remember those days. We gave our youngest Emily’s middle name.

      Thanks for your prayers.

    Great photos bro and glad things are progressing well. Cohen is a champ just like his Great-Uncle and I ain’t talking about Paul. Ha. Can’t wait to get up there and see the little man for myself, the rest of you too.

    1. Trent,

      The lighting in the room is off the hook for “blues.” Won’t let a sibling rivalry break-out over which champ Coehn takes after. Barbara Anderson told me it was Patty. Looks like we are all in second there!

      See you next week.

  7. Debbie Foster says:

    Todd, Thanks for the pics and updates. He is sooooo precious. We are praying for you all.

    1. Debbie,

      Thanks for stopping by. Glad for your prayers.

  8. rick davis says:

    He is small and lovely. See you soon.

    1. Rick,

      Yes on both counts. Seems like the grandfatherly thing to say if I recall your regular remarks after your first, “Perfect in every way.”

      Looking forward to seeing you here next month.

    I love the pic of Craig…I think that is a capture any photographer would love to get, so much is said in that gaze. And for grandpa to be the one to snap it makes it even more special.

    1. Charlie,

      I wanted to lighten it up a bit but I think the setting is best conveyed as it is. It was fun to catch Craig who usually eschews his photo taken. I think it may have been he wanted everyone to know just who Cohen’s “Daddy” is. 🙂

  10. I just wanted to let you all know that Terry and I are praying for Cohen and his entire family. Kimberly and Craig are lucky to have parents that will help see them through this difficult time. We will keep praying daily for his speedy recover and his “win to come home”.

    1. Terry and Kim,

      Thanks for your kind words and prayers.
