Burns Family Blog
Fletcher's mother sent out e-mail updates to our friends and
family in order to keep everyone up to date on what's happening.
On January 20, 2007 she started a Blog.
Here is a backup copy of that Blog.

After three very tough days Fletcher had a great day. He was so happy and playful today! I enjoyed a very sweet afternoon with my son. We read books and sang songs. He laughed and kissed me a lot today! At one point, Fletcher was laying on his side watching a DVD and I leaned over and put my cheek on his, he reached up and put his hand in my hair and played with it for what seemed like forever. That had to be my favorite part of this great day with my sweet boy.
This is a picture I took of Fletcher today. His little eyes have been swollen for a few days. We are still in the PICU at Baptist with the hope of returning to TCC tomorrow or Thursday. Fletcher's pneumonia is much better, but the administering of his electrolytes are the hold up at this point. In the PICU they are able to give him IV electrolytes but there are some issues about giving him IV electrolytes at TCC. They are trying to work out a plan between the hospital and TCC so we'll see what happens. I'll try to update tomorrow. We would appreciate your prayers. Days like today make it hard to believe the bad news we've been given. The Lord is sovereign and we'll enjoy each day He gives us. Thank you so much for your love and support!

So glad to hear it! Ben and I prayed for Fletcher to have a great night's sleep last night and a peaceful day today. Sounds like that is exactly what happened. Thank you, Lord. We love you!

I took an extended sabbatical from blogging, but have been in prayer for Fletcher throughout that time. I think about him so often, and you and Craig and the girls. Just know when my comments become scarce, my prayers do not. I LOVED hearing your descriptions of Fletcher putting his cheek to yours, then asking you to rub his head. We are so privileged to get to be mommies!!!! Especially to such special young people as Fletcher. He is just - simply - sweetness and joy.
